Issa tops The Hill's 50 Wealthiest: Page 49 of 51


The 2012 vice presidential contender holds his own in the "millionaires club" of the Senate.

Portman's $7.3 million portfolio is buttressed by holdings in commercial rental property and land in Ohio and Kentucky that's worth at least $1 million.

Previously, the senator worked at Portman Equipment Company, a business started by his father. Before entering politics, Portman started his own private law practice and represented the company.

Portman's net worth increased about $600,000 last year, in part due to a decline in his liabilities. Portman had $750,000 in liabilities in 2011, but only $350,000 worth in 2012.
