Who is N.J.'s richest member of Congress? The poorest? They're all ranked here

Members of Congress, who are paid $174,000 a year, must file financial dlsclosure forms every year, detailing their assets, debts, outside income and gifts.

 

They file in ranges, and the smallest value in each range for the 2016 reports was used to calculate the candidates' wealth. Only assets owned by the lawmaker or jointly owned with a spouse were used. Those owned solely by a spouse or dependent child were not included.

 

Lawmakers do not have to list their personal homes but some do. Some lawmakers received extensions. In those cases, forms covering 2015, were used. Here are the latest disclosures of New Jersey's federal lawmakers, ranked from least wealthy to richest member.
