When asked how much he was worth earlier this year, Mitt Romney could only offer a broad range. “It’s between $150 and about $200 some-odd million dollars, I think that’s what the estimates are,” he said. But now a Forbes analysis of Romney’s finances pegs the actual number at $230 million, which we guess falls under “$200 some-odd million dollars.” Anyway, we’re not sure that it really matters. Point is, the guy is rich.
