It comes as no surprise that Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) topped Roll Call’s list, released this morning, ranking as the wealthiest vulnerable Member of Congress. Her ranking confirms, yet again, that Senator McCaskill is much better off after serving in the Senate. She now owns a luxury CityCenterDC condo, purchased for $2.7 million in 2014 and is invested in a Washington, D.C. restaurant noted to be part of Washington’s “power lunch” scene.
Roll Call: “Nearly all of McCaskill’s assets are held by her husband, housing developer Joseph Shepard. Their only liability is $50,000 line of credit with Enterprise Bank. The Missouri Democrat had $9.1 million in her re-election account at the end of 2017. She has not made any contributions or loans to her campaign yet, though she did loan her 2012 Senate bid $195,000.”
