Question about Beto O'Rourke and compensation

Curious about how he supports himself and his family during this period of time when he campaigns for senate or president. Could be his wife works and supports the family. Maybe heís independently wealthy.

My question comes from a place of wanting him to run... and wishing him and his family no financial hardship.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

1. He started an internet service and software company that his wife now operates.

 

His wife comes from a wealthy real estate family. Donít think money is an issue for them.

Yeah, the OP really doesn't sound like that at all.

4. He is a self made multimillionaire. He is worth $7-12 million.

 

His wife's dad is a self made billionaire. So the whole family is pretty well off.
