Mitt Romney: Still Quite Wealthy

Even as Mitt Romney struggles with unemployment, the recession hasn't made much of a dent in his net worth, according to the Boston Globe:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is worth between $190 million and $250 million, his campaign said today after filing a personal financial disclosure statement with the Federal Election Commission....

Romney’s statement provides the most detailed look yet at the former venture capitalist’s finances during the past four years yet shows his net worth essentially unchanged over that time.

Vast personal wealth isn't always the most helpful attribute for a presidential candidate during an economic slump — remember John McCain losing track of how many homes he owns? — but voters won't suspect a thing if Romney just never wears a tie ever again.
