Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' Net Worth Shows He Isn't Rich Compared To Other US Politicians
The politician is not a millionaire.
Florida's governor, Ron DeSantis, didn't always hold office, though he always served the U.S. in some way, whether it be as an advisor to the Navy SEAL Team 1 or a practicing lawyer. However, his net worth isn't as high as you might think... well, at least not compared to other politicians.
In fact, his former gubernatorial opponent, Charlie Crist, is worth over six times more.
DeSantis, according to Celebrity Net Worth and documents obtained by Insider, has around $320,000 in total gains.
Crist, by comparison, is at $2 million. Other politicians, like current U.S. President Joe Biden, have a net worth of $9 million.
However, DeSantis is expected to announce his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election this week, a run that could stretch the politician's wallet even thinner. *
Though he holds an esteemed title through his gubernatorial service, he has a long way to go to match up financially with his colleagues.
Celebrity Net Worth reports that he does not own any stocks or real estate, unlike the 45th President of the U.S., Donald Trump — who, by the way, is supposedly worth an estimated $2 billion.
The governor did attend Harvard Law School. Upon graduation, he not only entered the military but also received a Bronze Star Medal, a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal and a National Defense Service Medal.
After his service, he was in the U.S. House of Representatives, which led him to the U.S. Senate races, which he dropped out of, and, eventually, became governor of Florida.
DeSantis is married to Casey Black who was a television host in Jacksonville, Florida before becoming First Lady of the Sunshine State. The duo has three kids together.
