WASHINGTON – New figures show Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s personal wealth – worth up to $250 million – survived the nation’s economic crisis.

But tax documents also show that his pledge to sell off interests that conflict with his GOP stances did not extend to some investments in a family charity.

The new records make clear that Romney is by far wealthier than President Barack Obama or any of Romney’s GOP opponents. Romney’s immense fortune is estimated at $190 million to $250 million – within the same wide range as his 2007 presidential financial disclosure records.
