Chris Christie is not a popular governor. In fact, his popularity has plummeted to one of the lowest ratings in history. And now given his popularity, he appears to be trying to take advantage of his position to bring himself personal benefits.
But what is Chris Christie Net Worth? Where do his personal assets come from?
Chris Christie got involved in politics at an early age. After he graduated from college, he was a lawyer for a while, and then got elected to local politics. During his time as a lawyer, he served as a registered lobbyist.
He was involved in helping to get George W. Bush elected in the early 2000s, and he was then appointed U.S. attorney, which he served as for several years. In that position he went after white collar crime.
Christie gained national prominence, before several scandals caused him to recede from the spotlight. He was a strong supporter of Donald Trump.
Christie is not one of the more wealthy politicians on the national stage. In fact, according to a disclosure from 2018, he has less than $25,000 in cash in the bank.
However, he and his wife do have a number of assets. These assets include multiple blind trusts, one of which is valued at $250,000 to $500,000.
Christie also has real estate in New Jersey worth over a half million dollars.
Although Chris Christie has a long work history as an attorney and public servant, his net worth is surprisingly not that high. We estimate Chris Christie net worth in 2018 at $750,000 to $1.5 million.
