The Hill's 2011 50 Wealthiest in Congress


Warner’s fortune climbed by more than $6 million in 2010.

The increase in the Virginia Democrat’s wealth can be partly attributed to Warner paring down his debts. While the senator had more than $1 million in liabilities in 2009, he greatly reduced that debt to just one liability: a loan guarantee with Virginia Commerce Bank, worth at least $15,000.

Before entering public service, Warner was an early investor in Nextel and dabbled in venture capital for tech companies. He still has several assets tied to one investment firm, Columbia Capital Corp., some worth at least $5 million each.
