SLIDESHOW: Richest people in the U.S. by state – WDAM

According to Forbes,  the wealthiest people in all 50 U.S. states are reflected in the above slideshow.  Surprisingly, the two wealthiest people in the nation are not the Koch brothers, although they do have more money than they know what to do with.

Several of the wealthiest people were discovered by Forbes’ research as “new names” (WDAM, MS).  Others have remained the same.  Many inherited their fortunes, however most on the list are “self made”.

The two wealthiest people in the nation have fortunes in the bank totaling more than the entire states of Washington and Nebraska.

Click throughout the slideshow to see who the richest person is in your state.
