Florida Gov. Rick Scott released a financial disclosure report Friday that revealed for the first time he is reportedly worth at least $255 million.

Scott, who is running against Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, turned in a 125-page, federally required financial disclosure to the U.S. Senate.

The article goes on to state the following:

The report shows that his family is much richer than the Republican governor has been reporting to state authorities.

While the Senate report does not require exact amounts, it lists that at least $170 million in assets are held by Florida first lady Ann Scott. The disclosure was the first time that Scott has disclosed his wife’s investments, the Miami Herald reported.

The 65-year-old multi-millionaire businessman is the richest person to ever serve as the state’s governor, according to the Herald.

The financial report also shows that the Scott family has holdings in a vast array of companies as well as a substantial portfolio of bonds from local governments and other public institutions.

The holdings could raise questions about conflicts since both Scott and his wife have invested in companies that do business in Florida, including a subsidiary of the company that owns Florida’s largest electric utility.

Scott has routinely insisted he has no control over his investments since his own personal holdings are in a blind trust that is not managed by him. His campaign repeated that assertion after the report was released.
