WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – US presidential hopefuls Carly Fiorina and Hillary Clinton are among the wealthiest candidates running in the 2016 presidential contest, according to financial disclosure forms analyzed by media.
Fiorina, a former CEO of Hewlett Packard, tops the list of presidential candidates with a net worth of $59 million, the Hill reported after examining her tax forms. Among Fiorina’s assets is a $6.6 million home in Virginia that she owns with her husband.
The Hill reported that former president Bill Clinton and Hillary earned nearly $30 million in the past 16 months, according to financial disclosure statements. The Clintons earned about $200,000 for speaking fees and Hillary’s book, “Hard Choices,” raked in $5 million. The two also have a bank account worth between $5 million and $25 million, the Hill said.
The Clintons’ wealth and charitable foundation have come under scrutiny recently over questions about how donations and speaking payments may impact policy making. Bill Clinton has said he will stop doing paid speaking engagements if Hillary is elected president.
