Hillary Clinton has said she’d prefer to find other ways to regulate the banks besides breaking them up. Wall Street donors are showing their appreciation.

The Democrat’s campaign is collecting more cash from employees of the six biggest U.S. banks than any other presidential candidate, adding more than $155,000 last quarter to more than $300,000 from earlier this year. She beat Republican rival Jeb Bush, who got at least $390,000 from the bankers over the last two quarters, even though he worked among them last decade.
