A Texas Republican tops the Hill's annual list of the most wealthy members of Congress.
Representative Michael McCaul holds on to the top spot, thanks to his 290 million dollar net worth.
He was followed by Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts. He's the wealthiest Democrat in either house, with almost 199 million. Kerry snatched the second-spot from Californian Republican Representative Darrell Issa, who slid to third.
Democratic Congressman Jared Polis of Colorado and Senator Mark Warner of Virginia round out the top five.
Republicans dominated the list. 31 members of the GOP made the top 50.
