In an effort to make the United States government transparent and honest with the people, all elected senators – as well as other elected officials – must file a financial disclosure statement. This particular document will highlight all the investments, assets, and businesses that a senator might have. Hence, who are the richest senators in America? How much are they worth? Here is a list that you might find interesting:
1. “Mitt Romney”
First on our list is Mitt Romney, the richest individual in the Senate, as well as one that tried to run for president in the past. Currently, his net worth is estimated to be from $190 to $250 million and he has made his fortune before he decided to become a politician. Although he decided to leave his investment company, he still shares all the revenue the organization makes as a partner that has retired.
2. “Dianne Feinstein”
The first two things that you should know about Dianne are that she is the senator of California and that most of her fortune – close to 90 million dollars – comes from her spouse’s organization. Their company “Blum Capital” has a net worth of over $4 billion dollars and its main focus is on Pipe investments and growth capital. Another interesting piece of information is that she was born in 1933, which makes her the oldest working senator in the US.
3. “Rick Scott”
According to Scott Brian Cooper, although Rick Scott’s career was filled with scandals such as the ice penis scandal involving his assistant, his net worth is worth more than $200 million dollars. His career as a senator began in 2019, and before that, he was an elected governor of Florida. During his lifetime, he has made a wide range of investments, including ones in healthcare and companies such as Cyber Guard. His current term as senator will end in January 2025.
4. “Richard Blumenthal”
Next on our list is the senator from Connecticut, Richard Blumenthal, who together with his wife has a personal net worth of over 100 million dollars. However, most of the assets they own come from his spouse Cynthia who works as a real estate investor. Besides this, she is also the heiress of the Malkin empire – which is an organization that deals with commercial, residential, as well as office space services.
5. “John Hoeven”
Hoeven has served as the North Dakota Senator for 10 years now and his current net worth is approximately $47 million dollars. However, when it comes to the sources of his assets, as well as how he made so much money, there aren’t a lot of resources. Before he became a politician he was the president and SEO of Bank of North Dakota, but other than that, there isn’t enough information about how he accumulated his net worth.
