CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The Democratic National Committee is set to announce this week that it is moving some of its banking business from Bank of America to a union-owned bank, the Wall Street Journal is reporting, citing party officials.
The paper reports that the DNC is moving money to Amalgamated Bank, A New York City-based, union-owned bank, from Charlotte-based Bank of America.
The party intends to move all of its money to the bank after the November elections, the paper reports.
