Five of the leading contenders for the Republican nomination for president are all men, and they have all a lot of power.
That’s according to a new analysis of political power by the Washington Post, which analyzed the power relationships among the top candidates for the GOP nomination for the 2016 presidential election.
The analysis found that candidates with the most prominent male leadership positions, like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), former Florida Gov.
Jeb Bush, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie, are the strongest in the party.
These men wield power and influence across a broad spectrum of issues and have the most money and political muscle.
The top candidates in terms of money, influence and power have all male leaders.
Rubio has the largest personal fortune in the Senate, but he’s far from alone.
He has more than $150 million in his campaign coffers, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Bush is the second-wealthiest man in the Republican field, but that money is a relatively small fraction of his campaign finances.
He also has the second largest personal wealth among the candidates.
Santorum is second with a fortune of $34.7 million, followed by Bush with $30.9 million.
Christie is third with $26.8 million.
The next closest is Sen. Rand Paul (R, Ky.), with $16.4 million.
The authors of the report say that this is the first time that the political power of the men has been examined in such detail.
“We wanted to know how powerful men really are, how influential they are, and how much money they make,” the report’s lead author, Jessica Schoenfeld, said in a statement.
The paper, based on interviews with more than 20 current and former top candidates, concluded that the men with the biggest financial and political power are the top two candidates in the field.
Bush is the richest candidate at a whopping $150 billion, followed closely by Rubio with $10.6 billion.
The top five candidates in wealth have combined assets of $1.3 trillion.
Rubio’s personal wealth is $27.8 billion, while Christie’s is $21.4 billion.
The average individual’s net worth is roughly $30,000, according the study, but a large portion of that wealth is held in private companies.
The authors found that the wealthiest candidates have been able to raise a lot more money than the rest of the field, even though their overall financial assets have not been tracked in detail.
While this wealth is impressive, it is dwarfed by the $2.6 trillion in assets of the top five men in terms, including Paul, Rubio, Christie, and Bush.
Paul’s wealth is more than twice that of the next richest candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas).
