Members Of Congress With The Highest Net Worth

AAA

Rep. Michael McCaul

Net Worth: $305.46 million

If this were a competition, it would be a blowout victory for Rep. Michael McCaul from Texas. Apparently, the way to make it into the top two spots is to marry a rich woman because that is what McCaul did. This lawyer and Federal prosecutor did well on his own, but nothing compared to certain assets his wife received as gifts from her parents. McCaul's wife, Linda, is the daughter of Clear Channel Communications Inc. CEO and founder, Lowry Mays. As a result, the family has many assets held in trusts.
