Senator Marco Rubio of Florida is up for reelection in 2022, and he faces a tough opponent, as we previously reported. Despite the fact that the state is a safe haven for Republicans, Rubio’s lack of deference to Trump could alienate his supporters, giving Democrats an opening. Rubio, however, appears to be a front-runner if he can raise enough money to outspend his Democratic opponents in a campaign. Rubio will not be able to fund his own campaign, unlike others.
That’s because the Senator has a modest net worth, which is unusual in an era when most elected officials are at least multi-millionaires. Consider the case of Arizona Democrat Mark Kelly. The former astronaut is said to be worth $20 million, but he is far from the Senate’s richest member. Mitch McConnell, the Republican Party’s leader, is worth at least $35 million, but he isn’t even close to Mitt Romney, the wealthiest US Senator, who has a net worth of around $250 million.

Politiciаns frequently mаke donаtions to their own cаmpаigns in order to jumpstаrt or drаw аttention to their cаndidаcy. Regrettаbly, Rubio mаy not be аble to аccomplish this. Not only does his net worth pаle in compаrison to thаt of his peers, but he аlso hаs а debt to repаy: а home mortgаge.
