Lindsey Graham Net Worth: Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has a much more modest net worth than many of his fellow 2016 presidential election competitors.
That is well below the average net worth of a U.S. Senator at $2.7 million. Graham's net worth is on par with the congressional average, however, at $1.02 million.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, only Marco Rubio, Bernie Sanders, and Scott Walker have a lower net worth among those who have declared for the 2016 presidential election.
Graham earns a standard Senate salary of $174,000 annually. He ranked 68th out of the Senate's 100 members by net worth in 2013.
Republican candidate Donald Trump has by far the highest net worth among candidates at approximately $4 billion. GOP hopeful Carly Fiorina has a net worth near $59 million. Former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has a net worth near $21 million.
According to USA Today, Graham removed a Washington, D.C., home from his assets in his 2014 filings. The home was previously valued between $500,000 and $1 million. Removing that from his assets should drastically reduce his net worth when the 2014 statistics are released.
The senator also recently reported checking, savings, and money market accounts with assets between $46,000 and $165,000. He invests in 13 mutual funds, many of which are valued between $15,000 and $50,000.
Graham has served as a U.S. Senator since 2003. He has been the senior senator of South Carolina since 2005. Before assuming office, Graham was a Judge Advocate for the U.S. Air Force.
Because candidates are only required to report personal finances in broad ranges, Lindsey's $1.02 million value is an approximation.
