Robust, substantial, considerable---pick your adjective for Mitt Romney’s financial holdings.
His campaign released a disclosure report on Friday, which it submitted to the Senate---and it’s filled with many zeroes.
The Associated Press is reporting Romney may be worth up to $270 million.
In a Goldman Sachs IRA, the report showed Romney has four mutual funds, each valued between $5,000,000 and $25,000,000. While those are the largest amounts listed, other holdings linked to Romney and his wife Ann may easily tally into the tens of millions.
Romney’s speeches, alone, have often paid more than Utah’s median family income for the entire year, which is roughly $62,500.
Since February 1, 2017, the campaign said he gave twenty speeches. One for NBC Universal paid $137,082, another at Blue Cross Blue Shield $100,000, and another at Deutsche Bank in the UK $122,000.
His campaign said it will also release Romney’s tax returns for 2017 and previous years, once the latest return is filed.
In the meantime, Republican Senate candidate Larry Meyers---one of 11 in the GOP who filed to run against Romney for the party nomination---has issued a challenge to him, which Meyers called the “Contract with Utah Voters.”
Meyers wrote it, which calls on Romney to “swear…he will not run for another public office during his term in the U.S. Senate and, specifically, will not campaign against President Donald J. Trump in the 2020 Republican primaries.”
Romney has said he is done running for president.
When told that, Meyers said, “Put it in writing.”
