Independent U.S. Senate hopeful Greg Orman has released a financial disclosure form, and it indicates he could be one of the wealthiest members of the Senate, if elected.

Stephen Koranda reports.

Orman's assets are somewhere between $21 and about $85 million. That wide range is because exact amounts aren't required on disclosure forms. Instead, the candidates pick from a range of values.

His largest assets are associated with real estate. He holds a stake in FRM Associates and another real estate firm, GMG Real Estate. He also owns a property in Idaho valued at between $1 and $5 million.

Orman has been a founder of several companies in the past, including Environmental Lighting Concepts and investment group Denali Partners.

Orman is challenging Republican Senator Pat Roberts. Also running in the race is Libertarian Randall Batson.
