Issa tops The Hill's 50 Wealthiest: Page 6 of 51


Blumenthal is not a businessman by trade, spending nearly his entire career in public service, but his marriage to the daughter of a New York real estate magnate has given him an impressive investment portfolio.

Trusts and real estate investments, including office buildings; apartments; warehouses and shopping centers, make up a bulk of the first-term senator's wealth, many of it attributed to his wife, Cynthia. He also has money in private equity funds.

Blumenthal only has one liability, a 30-year mortgage for a personal residence worth at least $500,000.
