According to Forbes, this is the richest person in your state

(NEXSTAR) – Each year, Forbes publishes a list of the richest people in the United States. In more recent history, the list has included national figures like Donald Trump, Mark Cuban, and Warren Buffett, but it also includes people with greater reputations back home.

The Forbes list includes the 400 richest people in America who made their fortunes through technology companies, retailers, investing, real estate and more. These billionaires range in age from 20 to 90 and are collectively worth $4 trillion.

Elon Musk, the man behind Tesla and SpaceX, is America’s richest person with a net worth of $251 billion. He ousted Jeff Bezos, whose fortune came from Amazon, by $100 billion. Rounding out the top 10 are Microsoft’s Bill Gates, Oracle’s Larry Ellison, Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett, Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer, Bloomberg LP’s Michael Bloomberg, and Walmart’s Jim Walton.

With a total of 80 billionaires, California had the most residents on the list. New York had the second most at 65, followed by Texas at 43, and Florida at 42. Though only eight of the Forbes 400 call it home, Washington had the most people naming the top 10 of any state — Bezos, Gates, and Ballmer.

Ten states did not have a resident who met the criteria for Forbes’ ranking: Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, Maine, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont and West Virginia.
