The results varied greatly from state to state. The “poorest” rich guy on the list is Alaska’s Robert Gillam with a measly $320 million, while Washington state’s Bill Gates tops the list with a whopping $78.8 billion – must be nice!
There are some household names on there: both Koch brothers (Charles for Kansas and David for New York), Warren Buffett in Nebraska, the Waltons of Walmart in Arkansas and Texas, and Sheldon Adelson the casino magnate of Nevada, along with many you probably haven’t even heard of.
Biggest surprise: Donald Trump did not make the list of richest people. Find out how much he is really worth in this video:
