Movoto Map Shows Nats Owner as Wealthiest Maryland Resident
LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — An interactive map created by Movoto shows the wealthiest Americans by state, and Nationals owner Ted Lerner made the list.
The map shows Lerner as the wealthiest Maryland resident with $4.6 billion to his name. At $20 billion, Jacqueline Mars, heiress to the American candy company Mars, is the richest Virginian.
That seems like chump change compared to the wealthiest person in the country, Bill Gates, at $80 billion.
The Walton sisters, heiresses to the Walmart fortune, have nothing to be ashamed about as they were both named the wealthiest in their states.
Christy Walton is the wealthiest in Wyoming, with a few billion more to her name than her sister, at $37.9 billion. Alice Walton is the wealthiest Texan at $35.3 billion.
According to data from Forbes and Celebrity Net Worth, the wealthiest members of each state did not achieve their fortunes in the same way. They range from entrepreneurs, to heirs and heiresses, as well as widows.
