ANOTHER ONE? Liberal Anti-Trump Billionaire Tom Steyer Announces 2020 Run For President As Democrat

California Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell dropped out of the 2020 race this week and now another candidate is jumping in.

Billionaire activist Tom Steyer declared his candidacy for the presidency Tuesday in a video, reversing an earlier announcement several months ago that he intended to sit out the 2020 Democratic primary race.

“Nobody owns me,” Steyer said in an interview with NBC News. “I’m not afraid to speak my mind. I’m not beholden to them. I’m not beholden to the establishment.”

While he is not well known and the candidate field is already overstuffed with two dozen candidates, Steyer’s money could give him an edge, as could the extensive email list of 8.3 million names compiled by a group he founded to push for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

He has committed to spending at least $100 million of his own money on his campaign and has already bought $1 million in TV advertising in the first four primary and caucus states, according to ad tracker Advertising Analytics.

Steyer is a leading proponent of removing the president from office. But just as Trump did in 2016, Steyer is pitching himself as incorruptible by corporate interests thanks to his vast personal wealth.
