He won his most reeent election by 13 percentage points. Candidates, though, only have to disclose their assets in broad ranges. And if an asset is worth more than $50 million, as one of Hollingsworth's is, the upper limit on that asset doesn’t have to be disclosed. So we can only say that Hollingsworth’s assets are worth at least $58.5 million. That’s enough to put him in the top tier of wealthy House members. Hollingsworth owns Hollingsworth Capital Partners, a Tennessee company that renovates and markets old industrial buildings and that has done business in Indiana. Hollingsworth lived in Tennessee until last year, when he decided to run for Congress from Indiana.
