Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina has a net worth of $58.95 million, according to financial disclosures released by her campaign.
The Weekly Standard reports that she has released the most comprehensive financial disclosures of any candidate in the 2016 field.
Her exact net worth — $58,954,494.88 — results from her time as a Fortune 20 CEO at Hewlett-Packard and through her other business ventures since leaving HP in 2005.
The Federal Election Commission does not require candidates to release such measures as “real property” and other forms of assets that can add to a person’s net worth. Yet Fiorina chose to disclose these categories.
“I’ve taken hundreds of questions — whether about hot dogs or my personal finances — and I think it’s all fair game,” Fiorina wrote in a statement. “I think leadership of any kind requires trust and transparency and voters should demand no less from their political leadership in government.”
Fiorina appears to have learned from the experience of Mitt Romney, who got trounced in 2012 by the Obama campaign and some in his own party for not fully disclosing his finances at the onset of his campaign. Eventually he did release thorough personal financial details, but the damage had already been done.
