Nelson’s minimum net worth fell about $500,000 last year.
The senator’s biggest assets are in rental and development properties, stakes in investment real estate and a holding in a Columbus, Neb., metal manufacturing company. Those assets, along with retirement funds and stock in Berkshire Hathaway, account for much of his wealth.
The senator, who is retiring from Congress after the election, has no debt.
