With a presidential field fast approaching 12 high-profile Republicans — and which could climb to as many as 20 — the GOP's 2016 class offers voters a little bit of everything.
There is the top-tier, a group that includes former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who formally launched his candidacy on Monday. There are the largely single-issue candidates, such as South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, whose preference is to talk about national security. There are even the quixotic underdogs, such as Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, an as-yet unannounced White House hopeful.
And then there is Donald Trump.
Trump is to announce his 2016 intentions on Tuesday at a Manhattan skyscraper that bears his name.
A highly successful businessman and reality television personality, Trump is positioned to have a greater impact on the early months of the Republican presidential primary contest than many GOP leaders might like.
Should he choose to join the race, Trump would be required to release a personal financial disclosure that would reveal intimate details about his personal finances. The disclosure would include his net worth, sources of income, liabilities and assets, and reveal the same information for his wife and dependent children.
