    PolitiFact says:

    Our rating

    DeMint said that the “big Wall Street banks, the big corporations” give “many times more” political donations to Democrats than Republicans and he referred to his time in the U.S. Senate from 2005 to 2013.

    Democrats raised nearly three times more than Republicans in one financial sector in one election cycle. But for the most part, when they led their margins were much smaller. And in recent cycles, Republicans have led in money from Wall Street and business.

    We rate DeMint’s statement False.
