Activist Tom Steyer Announces Presidential Run

July 9, 2019

Activist Tom Steyer joined the crowded 2020 Democratic field Tuesday. His campaign indicated it would spend at least $100 million on the race, starting with TV ads in several early primary/caucus states.

The decision marks a reversal of Steyer's announcement in January that he would not seek the Democratic nomination in 2020. At the time, he said that he would continue his activism around the impeachment of President Trump.
