2020 Watch: Steyer Appears to Be Laying Groundwork For Presidential Campaign

Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer plans to spend at least $110 million during the 2018 midterm elections, making him the “largest single source of campaign cash” for Democrats, according to report published by Politico on Tuesday.

The $110 million Steyer plans to spend, though, is mainly being used to build an infrastructure that resembles that of a presidential campaign.

According to Politico:

“Steyer will put his cash toward building out NextGen America and Need to Impeach, his two growing political organizations, as well as funding clean energy ballot initiatives in Arizona and Nevada. Steyer has already doubled his initial $20 million investment in Need to Impeach to $40 million, and has not ruled out adding more.”

Steyer’s operation includes “polling, analytics and staffing capabilities that stand to shape and define the issues the party runs on in November.”

Between Steyer’s two main political groups, “NextGen” and “Need to Impeach,” Steyer will have “close to 1,000 people on staff, in addition to over 2,000 volunteers,” by election day 2018.

According to a spokesperson for “Need to Impeach,” the group has an email list that is larger than the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) email list, comprising of over 5.5 million Americans.

“Our list is bigger than the NRA’s — and we’re going to make sure that it votes that way in 2018,” Kevin Mack, the lead strategist for Need to Impeach, told Politico.

Mack also told Politico that Steyer is “a billionaire who believes in return on investment.”

Whether that return on investment is the impeachment of President Trump, or Steyer being elected president in 2020, is unclear.
