Wisconsin Governor and Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker has an estimated net worth of -$72,500, according to the Boston Globe.

Walker’s net worth is the lowest of any of the 2016 presidential candidates, according to the Globe report.

According to The Daily Beast, Walker owes $50,000 on a Sears credit card, and also has debt on a Barclay Card.

“Over the years, the governor has given $370,000 of his salary back to taxpayers,” AshLee Strong, a spokesperson for Walker’s Our American Revival PAC, told The Daily Beast in April. “He has two kids in college, parents who live with him, a mortgage, car payments, and small credit card use. All in all, pretty ordinary stuff.”

Strong is referencing the salary that Walker returned while he was a Milwaukee County executive, prior to being elected as the state’s governor.

The Washington Post reports that Walker declared his assets at between $36,000 to $190,000 with liabilities of at least $120,000. He also has between $100,001 and $500,000 in student loan debt from loans taken to pay for his sons’ college tuition.

The Post says Walker reported receiving $45,000 as an advance payment for his book and makes $222,899 as Wisconsin’s governor.
