20. Penny Pritzker – $2.5 billion
Penny Sue Pritzker is an American billionaire businesswoman who served as Secretary of Commerce in the second Barack Obama administration.
The 58-year-old had to resign from 158 entities and sell her interest in 221 companies to become eligible for the position. Repeatedly included in the top 100 most influential women in the world by Forbes, Pritzker is a potential Democratic bet to be considered in the future campaigns.
Like many wealthy politicians of her caliber, Penny was lucky enough to be born in an already made family business. She currently owns approximately $2.5 billion and can easily finance her potential future campaigns if needed.
