John Edwards Net Worth: John Edwards is an American politician who has a net worth of $55.5 million dollars. John Edwards was the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2004. Born Johnny Reid "John" Edwards on June 10, 1953, in Seneca, South Carolina, he is the former US Senator from North Carolina. Furthermore, Edwards was the 2004 Democratic nominee for Vice President, as well as a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004 and 2008. Being the son of a mill-worker, young Edwards earned a law degree from the University of North Carolina in 1977. After his graduation, it took him twenty years to make a name for himself as a frequently-winning trial lawyer representing "the little guy" in lawsuits against large companies. It was in 1998, when he embarked on his first run for political office, ending with a win over incumbent Republican Lauch Faircloth. Once he became North Carolina's junior senator, Edwards went on to ran for the Democratic party's presidential nomination in 2004, even though he was relative unknown nationally. He surprised his political opponents with his strong run, which unfortunately ended with John Kerry getting enough primary wins to clinch the nomination. Four years later, Edwards made a second bid for the Democratic nomination during the 2008 presidential campaign. In his private life, he is married to Elizabeth Edwards, with whom he has five children.
