Buzz file: Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio's financial disclosure forms



The U.S. Senate made public today financial disclosures for 2010:

Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson shows $42,000 in retirement income from his years in state government and an array of money market accounts, IRA and profit sharing plans. Nelson's largest asset is a SunTrust money market account with a value of $250,001 to $500,000 (the Senate has broad reporting ranges). Two other SunTrust accounts are worth between $50,001 and $100,000. Nelson owns two plots of undeveloped land in Brevard County, one worth at least $1 million and the other at least $100,001. He reported no liabilities. (View his report here)

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio reported a $220,000 salary from Marco Rubio P.A., and $13,521 from his teaching position at Florida International University. Rubio listed a Terremark fund worth $1,001 to $15,000, as well as Citibank checking and savings accounts and prepaid college plans for his children. He has an ABA Retirement Fund -- a 401(k) plan for law firms -- valued at $50,001 to $100,000. He also lists a rental home in Tallahassee, valued at between $100,001 and $250,000, which brought in at least $1,001 in income in 2010. Rubio has student loan debt held by Sallie Made of at least $100,001, and a GMAC mortgage on rental property listed at between $100,001 and $250,000. (view his report here)

Nelson and Rubio earn $174,000 as senators, which is not listed on the reports.

You'll have to wait to see the financial reports from Republican U.S. Senate candidates Adam Hasner, Mike Haridopolos and George LeMieux. All three asked for -- and were granted -- filing extensions.

Here is LeMieux's 2010 disclosure from his interim time as a senator.
