(Newser) – Mitt Romney has a net worth of up to a quarter of a billion dollars, reports the Boston Globe. His campaign estimates the total to be somewhere between $190 million and $250 million in a financial disclosure filed with the FEC. The total, which hasn't changed much over the past four years, should easily give him the deepest pockets of any candidate. Jon Huntsman hasn't filed yet, however.

Romney earns millions in a retirement deal from Bain Capital, the venture firm he created and ran until 1999, and he raked in hefty speaking fees over the last year, including $68,000 to address the National Franchisee Association in Las Vegas. He also pulled in $114,000 for sitting on the board at Marriott International, notes the Globe. So much for being "unemployed."
