TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Republican Gov. Chris Christie and his wife made a bit less money in 2015 compared to 2014 as he waged an unsuccessful campaign for president, but they still earned close to $1 million.

Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, reported $913,420 of income in 2015, according to tax returns released Tuesday by the governor’s office. That’s down from $970,161 in 2014.

The tax returns show Mary Pat Christie was paid $698,708 from Wall Street finance firm Angelo, Gordon & Co. She left that job in April 2015 before Christie launched his presidential run, but her 2015 income from the company was only $22,000 less than in 2014.

The governor makes an annual salary of $175,000 but invests a portion in a 401(k) retirement fund each year. The couple also makes money from blind trusts in their names and had about $24,000 in rental income.

The Christies, who have four children, donated $24,302 to charity.

Christie has now released 13 years of returns, which span his time as governor and years he spent as a federal prosecutor.
