How Bruning Became a Millionaire as a Public Servant

"Most millionaire politicians achieve wealth before winning office," the Omaha World Herald notes.

But Nebraska U.S. Senate candidate Jon Bruning (R) "blazed a different path, one in which an ambition for affluence led to involvement and investment in at least 17 private companies, nearly all while serving as Nebraska's attorney general."

"Along the way, the Republican front-runner for the state's open U.S. Senate seat built a multimillion-dollar net worth while drawing a salary that ranged between $75,000 and $95,000 as the state's top lawyer. His business pursuits have emerged as an issue in the campaign, prompting critics to question how he could find the time to fulfill his public responsibilities."
