Lindsey Graham Net Worth $1.5 million

Raised in South Carolina, Lindsey was educated at D.W. Daniel High School. Later, he joined the Reserve Officer’s Training Corps, before continuing his studies at the University of Southern Carolina. When he was 21 years old, his mother died and 15 months later, his father also left the world. At the time, Lindsey’s sister was only 13 years old, so Lindsey adopted his sister after his parents’ death, and then graduated from the University Of South Carolina School Of Law with a Juris Doctor in 1981. Eventually, Lindsey joined United States Air Force from 1982 to 1988. He later worked as a lawyer in private practice, however, his career as a lawyer was voluntarily cut short as he was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives, where he served from 1993 to 1995. This was the time of his career when his net worth really began to rise.

Subsequently, Lindsey served in the US House of Representatives from 1995 to 2003, representing South Carolina’s 3rd congressional district. During this time, leading Republican politician Strom Thurmond was serving as the senator, who then retired in 2002, when Lindsey ran for the Senate to win against his opponent, Democrat politician Alex Sanders. Since then, Lindsey has won three more elections and has been serving his third term at the US Senate by defeating politician Bob Conley in 2008 and Brad Hutto and Thomas Ravenel in 2014. Of course, the salary he yields from being in such a prestigious post has been significant in adding to Lindsey’s net worth over the years.

A politician favored by republican supporters, Lindsey is noted for his support of the military and United States leadership in world affairs. He is also noted to be one of the flexible Republican politicians, for his ability and willingness to negotiate with opposition Democrats on issues like global warming, tax reform and immigration reform.

Regarding his personal life, 61 year-old Lindsey has never been married. More recently, on 21st June, 2015, Lindsey announced his candidacy for President of United States but he ended his campaign on 21st December, 2015. As of now, he has announced that he will not be voting for Donald Trump, the Republican presidential candidate for 2016. At the present, Lindsey serves as the United States Senator from South Carolina while his net worth of $1.5 million caters to his personal needs.
