The Hill's 2011 50 Wealthiest in Congress


The Republican senator, up for reelection in 2012, still remains one of the richest members of Congress.

Isakson saw his wealth tick up slightly last year —from $6.4 million in 2009 to $6.5 million in 2010. Isakson has significant holdings in brand-name companies like Starbucks, IBM and Visa, but some of the senator’s biggest investments are in farmland and real estate. Isakson has a $500,000 holding in farmland in Marietta, Ga., as well as 12 acres of land in Georgia’s Raoun County worth at least $1 million. In addition, the senator has a Washington condo on Massachusetts Avenue worth at least $250,000.

For his one liability, Isakson has a home equity loan with Wells Fargo Bank for at least $15,000.
