Ross Perot May Be Wealthiest US Presidential Candidate, But Hillary’s The One To Watch
Ross Perot may have the billions, but the talk of Washington this summer is that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is gearing up for another run for the White House in 2016.
Wealth-X, the world’s leading ultra high net worth (UHNW) intelligence provider, released today a list of America’s 10 wealthiest presidential candidates. Perot emerged as the richest with a fortune of US$4.3 billion, 10 times more affluent than publishing tycoon Steve Forbes, the next person on the list, and about three times wealthier than all of the other individuals on the list combined.
Hillary Clinton, who ran for the Democratic nomination in 2008, has a net worth of US$100 million, putting her in the sixth spot along with her husband, former President Bill Clinton. Wealth-X has combined the net worth of the Clinton family to demonstrate the potential financial clout that would be behind Hillary’s presidential campaign if she runs in the 2016 race.
