50 Richest Members of Congress

Everything is bigger in Texas, including the bank accounts.

According to Roll Call’s annual survey of Member wealth, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) is now the richest Member of Congress, with a fortune worth  at least $294 million, a vast increase over last year that was  apparently the result of large transfers from his in-laws.
The Texas lawmaker topples Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) from the No. 1 position, who reported a minimum net worth of  $193 million on his most recent financial disclosure report and is now  the third richest Member of Congress.
McCaul also leapfrogged Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who remains the second richest Member of Congress, with a reported fortune of more than $220 million.
