Aside from the $1.74 Martin O’Malley made playing his guitar, Hillary Clinton is the only Democratic candidate for president who is getting money from Wall Street—and for her, it has come in droves.

Bernie Sanders has said that while he will stay true to his pledge not to directly attack Clinton, he will continue to point out her ties to the financial industry.

“I am surprised that Hillary Clinton does not understand why so many people have strong concerns about her receiving many, many hundreds of thousands of dollars from Goldman Sachs and from many other financial,” Sanders said .

Clinton’s long relationship with the financial sector has given Sanders a lot to point out, and she continues to give him new ammunition. Just this week, she was criticized for spending her time raising money at an investment bank rather than spending it talking to voters in Iowa.

Attending fundraisers hosted by finance executives has become standard practice for Clinton, who had already raised $5.9 million from the securities and investment industry leading into the most recent fundraising quarter.

Here is a list of 31 fundraising events that have been put on or will be put on for the Clinton campaign by the financial industry since she started campaigning early last year:
