Do They Even Have Money In Wyoming? Here’s The Richest Resident In Every State.

By / 10.30.13

Consider this your list of homes to break into: Wealth-X has compiled a list of the richest residents from every state, which should make Washingtonians feel bad for being literally worth approximately 1/2,000,000th of your state-mate, Bill Gates. The Microsoft CEO is the wealthiest man in the country, so obviously, he’s at the top of the list. All the way at the bottom: the chairman and CEO of Gilead Science, John Martin, who hails from Kentucky and is ONLY worth $300 million. Psh. That can’t even get him into the $301 Million Club.
