Who Is Tom Steyer?

Democrat Icon

Tom Steyer is a 62-year-old billionaire philanthropist that earned his wealth as a hedge fund manager. A late-comer to the 2020 presidential race, Steyer did not launch his campaign until July 9, 2019. Never one to seek political office for himself prior to this election, Steyer’s first high-profile endeavor involved a $10 million campaign to impeach President Trump in 2017. Steyer also launched NextGen America to support groups positions regarding climate change, immigration, health care, and education.

Steyer officially ended his 2020 Presidential campaign on February 29, spending over $253 million and winning 0 delegates through the first four primaries and caucuses. He spent more than $1600 for every vote he amassed during the cycle. This is currently a record in national-level US politics, so at least there’s that.

Voter Base

Voter Base Icon

Tom Steyer’s voter base is centered around his previous endeavors. He got his political start when he worked on Walter Mondale’s Presidential campaign in 1983.

  • Environmentalists
  • Wealthy Democrats
  • Liberals

Odds For Next Candidate To Drop Out

When only eight Democratic candidates were left, online sportsbooks’ odds on the next candidate to drop out had Steyer near the top of the board. Since he dropped out before any of the others listed below (some of whom have also since dropped out), lucky bettors picked up a cool $250 for every $100 wagered. That’s a much better return than Steyer’s own campaign!

  • Amy Klobuchar +250
  • Tom Steyer +250
  • Elizabeth Warren +900
