Sen. John Kerry (Democrat, Massachusetts)

Estimated Net Worth: $198.65 Million

Senator John Kerry has been on the national stage since 1985. Born into an affluent family, Kerry attended Yale University before enlisting in the Navy and served a tour of duty in South Vietnam. Like McCaul (and several other members on this list), Kerry’s vast fortune is attributed to his wife, Theresa Heinz Kerry, whose late husband was heir to the Heinz Ketchup fortune.
