These are the richest billionaires in every state this year: report

Bill Gates didn't make it to the list even though he's the second richest man in the world

There are more than 600 billionaires in the U.S., but only a few can be recognized as the richest person in each state.

Earlier this year, Forbes published a list of those billionaires. However, the second richest man in the world didn’t make the cut.

Bill Gates, who takes the spot as second richest person in the world, lives in Washington state, where Jeff Bezos also lives. Because the Amazon founder is the richest person in the world, Gates wasn’t listed in Forbes’ report.

WHO IS THE RICHEST ROYAL IN THE WORLD?

According to the magazine, while most U.S. states and Washington, D.C. have at least one billionaire, there are seven states that don’t have a single resident worth at least 10 figures.

Those states without billionaires include Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota and Vermont.

Last year, North Dakota did have its first billionaire, hotelier Gary Tharaldson, but as the markets crashed because of the coronavirus this year, he lost his billionaire status, Forbes reported.

Jeff Bezos, Michael Bloomberg and Larry Ellison are the richest billionaires in Washington state, New York and California this year, according to Forbes. (AP)
