2020 WATCH: Tom Steyer is Hosting a Petting Zoo at ASU to Register Millennial Voters

Billionaire environmentalist and liberal donor Tom Steyer’s political organization, NextGen America, announced it would host a petting zoo at Arizona State University on Tuesday to register millennial voters as part of the group’s $2 million investment in the state ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

NextGen previously announced that it would be investing $30 million in ten states including $2 million in Arizona ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

That $2 million in Arizona will be used to register millennials to vote and get Democrats elected at every level in the state.

NextGen hopes to have 55 paid staffers in the state by Election Day, the Arizona Capitol Times reported:

“NextGen Arizona already has 19 paid staffers on the ground, and they expect to have 55 in the state by November. In addition to targeting nearly 800,000 young voters through direct mail and digital advertising, NextGen will work on 24 Arizona college campuses, including 12 community colleges and Diné College.”

One way the group hopes to register millennials is by hosting events like music festivals and petting zoos at colleges in Arizona.

According to the Arizona Capitol Times:

“On Tuesday, the group will hold a music festival at Northern Arizona University and host a petting zoo at Arizona State University to entice students to register to vote.”

Steyer, who has been barnstorming the country has part of his $40 million impeachment campaign, is also pushing a renewable energy ballot initiative in Arizona.

Steyer’s ballot initiative would “force Arizona utilities to get half their energy from renewable sources by 2030,” and would need 225,953 valid signatures.

Arizona’s largest utility company, Arizona Public Service, is opposed to the ballot initiative Steyer is proposing. Getting the required signatures is expected cost Steyer millions.
