His business background may present a ripe target for opposition researchers seeking examples of an all-consuming desire to make money for himself rather than help the public.

This is the same critique that damaged 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, a wealthy investor who lost the general election to Democratic President Barack Obama.
