Steyer Hedges on Democrats

Tom Steyer 2018

Rumors had swirled around whether he would challenge Sen. Dianne Feinstein as she seeks a fifth full term in the Senate. "Young voters are energized like never before, and have the power make the difference in 2018", Steyer said.

Hedge fund billionaire, Democratic mega-donor and environmentalist Tom Steyer holds a news conference regarding his political future and plans in in Washington, DC. on January 8, 2018.

Steyer has gained additional attention in recent months with a $20-million nationwide campaign urging Congress to impeach President Trump.

"I'm not going to run for office in 2018".

His voter turnout campaign, called NextGen Rising, said it will target more than 30 seats held by Republicans and a handful of swing seats controlled by Democrats. In 2016, the group focused on mobilizing young voters around climate change policies.

Steyer said Monday that the campaign will be active in 10 states: Arizona, California, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. "NextGen America is going to do all that we can to elect a Congress that represents us all - and send failed leaders like Paul Ryan, Darrell Issa, and Barbara Comstock back home". Darrell Issa, R-Calif., in the November 6 midterms.

Steyer plans to hand-deliver 535 copies of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" to each member of the House and Senate, he told California's KQED radio station.

Considered a hugely successful hedge fund manager when he retired in 2012, the billionaire Democratic activist has since spent hundreds of millions of dollars in support of Democrats and against Republican candidates in every election since 2014.
