Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador 6th poorest in Congress

Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador is the sixth-poorest member of Congress, according to a comparison by, with an average net worth, based on his federal financial disclosures, of minus $216,000. That’s far eclipsed by the poorest member, Rep. David Valadao, R-Calif., whose $25 million-plus in debt stems from a family dairy farm that his father started in 1973.

Labrador is among 20 House members and one senator whose average net worth is negative. By contrast, the site ranked Idaho Sen. Jim Risch the 18th richest member of Congress, with an average net worth of $53.4 million.
