Senator John McCain has reportedly been spending time at his ranch home in Arizona while battling brain cancer.
McCain’s new memoir, “The Restless Wave,” was released on Tuesday.
He and wife Cindy McCain quietly sit on a fortune of more than $200 million, largely due to Cindy’s stake in one of the largest Anheuser-Busch distributors.
What you may not know is that McCain and his wife Cindy sit on a private, but hefty fortune.
He’s reportedly worth $16 million, according to Celebritynetworth.com. But that’s only a fraction of his wealth — the rest comes from his wife, who is an heiress to Hensley & Co., one of the largest Anheuser-Busch distributors.
A prenuptial agreement dictates that the McCains’ money is in Cindy McCains’ name, reports the New York Times.
Take a look inside their fortune.
John McCain’s money comes from multiple sources: his government salary and pension, a sprawling real estate portfolio, and private wealth largely held by his wife.
The standard US Senator’s salary is $174,000, and McCain received more than $73,000 from his Navy pension in 2015.

McCain also earned $1.7 million related to sales of his 2007 book “Hard Call: The Art of Great Decisions,” which he donated to charity.
