I doubt if there’s any lesson to be drawn from this piece of information, but see what you think:
With a minimum net worth of $14.7 million in 2006, Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri ranks 11th in wealth among the nation’s 100 senators.
And Republican Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas isn’t far behind. He ranks 17th, with a minimum net worth of just over $10 million.
That’s according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which released its rankings of the wealthiest members of Congress today. McCaskill and Brownback were the only members from Missouri and Kansas to crack the top 25.
