15. Jim Justice – $1.6 billion
Jim Justice is arguably the most undecided politician on our list.
The current Governor of West Virginia switched from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party, won the elections in his state, and then went back to the GOP to affirm his support of Donald Trump. Can you imagine the emotional drama of being one of his voters? We certainly can’t!
Justice made most of his $1.6 billion wealth by operating the primary producer of grain in the eastern United States. By far his most successful maneuver was selling some of his coal mines for $500 million to a Russian company and repurchasing them for 1/100 of the original price.
