Hellers Worth $2 Million

According to the yearly disclosure reports by members of Congress, Dean Heller and his wife are worth about $2 million. Most of the investments are held by Lynne Heller. The Las Vegas Review Journal takes a closer look.

The only thing I really care about is this:

The congressman also listed as an asset a loan to the Heller for Congress campaign valued between $15,000 and $50,000.

I touched on this before, essentially Heller might not even be in Congress would it not have been for that loan. Now that Republicans are in the minority in Congress, fundraising efforts seem to be even more difficult, so we'll wait and see when his campaign pays Heller's loan back and if he needs to take out another loan in 2008.

You can read the full report here (large pdf!). You just need to wade past the 76 pages of Shelley Berkley's disclosure report to get to Dean Heller's 10 pages.
