Lincoln Chafee, mostly known as Governor of Rhode Island, saved $32 million net worth. He ran for presidency in 2016, till he cancelled his bid in October, 2015. Then he was considered as one of the richest candidates for presidency.

The main part of Lincoln wealth comes from his political service. But he also got a lot as a result of inheritance from his late father. Chafee owns together with his wife a huge estate in Exeter, Rhode Island, which market value is estimated as $1, 3 million by Forbes.

Lincoln Chafee was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He is a son of late US Senator (father) and environmental activist (mother). He was educated in private schools, but earned his first salary as a farrier.

In 1985 Lincoln started career in politics. He was elected as the delegate to the Rhode Island Constitutional Convention. Then he managed to become the member of City Council in Warwick.

His big break took place in 1999, when he occupied the father’s place in US Senate after his sudden death in 1999.

Later he joined the Democratic Party and decided to participate in presidential run. He was a participant of the race from June 2015 till October, 2015. They say the reason of Lincoln Chafee decision to leave the run was his unpopularity. He had a small chance to win and that’s why decided to withdraw his candidacy.

Some part of his wealth Lincoln earned as an author. In 2008 he published a book “Against the Tide: How a Compliant Congress Empowered a Reckless President”, which gained some popularity.
