Devin Nunes Net worth, Bio and more

Devin Gerald Nunes is an American politician and former dairy farmer serving as the U.S. representative for California’s 22nd congressional district since 2003. A member of the Republican Party, Nunes was the chair of the House Intelligence Committee from 2015 to 2019. He was also a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team. Nunes’s district numbered as the 21st from 2003 to 2013 and the 22nd after redistricting is in the San Joaquin Valley and includes most western Tulare County and much of eastern Fresno County. 

Early career

In 1996, at age 23, Nunes was elected to the College of the Sequoias Board, making him one of California’s youngest community college trustees in state history. He served on the board until 2002.

In 2001 President George W. Bush appointed Nunes to serve as California State Director for the United States Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development section.

Education

After receiving his Associate of Arts degree from the College of the Sequoias in 1993, Nunes graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural business in 1995 and a master’s degree in agriculture in 1996. After finishing school, Nunes returned to farming.

Political positions

Former Trump campaign CEO and chief strategist Steve Bannon has called Nunes Trump’s second-strongest ally in Congress.

Los Angeles Times described him as “one of Trump’s most ardent and outlandish defenders in Congress” who “parroted the president’s conspiracy theories” and used his position “to try to undermine [the] investigation into Russian interference; in the 2016 election.”

During the presidency of Donald Trump, Nunes voted in line with the president’s stated position 96.2% of the time. As of October 2021, Nunes had voted in line with Joe Biden’s stated position 12.8% of the time.

Personal life 

The Nunes family is of Portuguese descent, immigrating from the Azores to California in the early 20th century. Nunes wrote a foreword to the 1951 novel Home Is An Island by Portuguese-American author Alfred Lewis for the 2012 edition by Tagus Press, an imprint of the Center for Portuguese Culture and Studies at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.

Nunes married Elizabeth Nunes, an elementary school teacher, in 2003. They have three daughters. Nunes is a practicing Catholic and attends Mass in Tulare.

Committees and caucuses

In 2015, Nunes became the Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

As co-chair of the U.S.–Mexico Friendship Caucus, he and Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer met with President Felipe Calderón of Mexico in April 2012.

Nunes is a member of the House Baltic Caucus and the U.S.-Japan Caucus.

Nunes to take on the senior executive role

Next month, Nunes will resign from Congress to become chief executive of former President Donald Trump’s fledgling social media company, the group said on 6 December.

In January, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, Nunes, will start as CEO of Trump Media & Technology Group, or TMTG, the firm said in a press release. 

The press release came hours after documents revealed that the unique purpose acquisition company — or SPAC — that plans to merge with Trump’s company is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC and another regulator had asked the SPAC, Digital World Acquisition Corp. or DWAC, for information about the lead-up to the deal with TMTG being announced.

Net worth 

Nunes has an estimated net worth of $170 thousand as of 2021.
