Ted Cruz tops annual list of highest-paid politicians

In 2018 it looked like the politician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (January 24) that Cruz is the highest-paid politician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between December 2019 and December 2020, a nearly $20 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American politician has an estimated net worth of $145 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Cruz Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Calgary Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercruz - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Ted) and a fashion line called “Ted Cruz Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Ted fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
