In a filing with the Federal Election Commission, GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney says he and his wife have holdings worth somewhere between $190 million and $240 million. As Bloomberg News reports, Romney's pile of money may make him richer than all of the other major Republican and Democratic presidential candidates combined.

Update: As the Los Angeles Times reports, Romney's filing confirms that he has divested from companies that do business with Iran but also reveals that he still holds $50,000 to $100,000 worth of shares in China Petroleum and Chemical Corp., or Sinopec, a company that has major operations in Sudan.
