2020 WATCH: Steyer to Spend $3.5 Million in Pennsylvania

Billionaire environmentalist and Democratic donor Tom Steyer’s political organization, NextGen America, announced on Thursday that it will be spending $3.5 million in Pennsylvania during the 2018 midterm elections, and will have 100 paid staffers in the Keystone State by election day.

This investment in Pennsylvania by NextGen is part of the group’s $30 million effort to mobilize millennial voters in nine battleground states ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

Penn Live reported:

“Steyer’s super-PAC NextGen America is looking to initially spend $3.5 million in Pennsylvania, hitting 75 college campuses, which includes 15 community colleges, as it looks to flip a half-dozen Congressional seats into Democratic hands this year. Those seats include the Bucks County-based 1st District, now held by Republican U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick; the vacant 5th and 6th District seats formerly held, respectively by Reps. Ryan Costello and Pat Meehan; the Lehigh Valley-based 7th District seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent and the central Pennsylvania based 10th District, now held by U.S. Rep. Scott Perry.”

NextGen already has 75 staffers on the ground in Pennsylvania, and hopes to have over 100 staffers in the state by election day. The group aims to “mobilize about 1 million voters, aged 18-35 statewide, through a mix of traditional door-knocking and digital advertising.”

Steyer, who has increased his national profile considerably since he launched a $40 million impeachment campaign against President Trump, seems to be positioning himself for a 2020 presidential run.

By election day 2018, Steyer will have spent over $80 million and have hundreds of staffers on the ground in crucial battleground states across America.
