Billionaire Tom Steyer wasted over $252 million on his failed presidential campaign, according to federal election records.
The campaign finance report filed on January 30, showed Steyer spent $252,841,942 on his campaign, according to Open Secrets.
Millions more were likely spent as Steyer continued to advertise in Nevada and South Carolina before calling it quits on February 29.
Honestly, I cant see a path where I can win the presidency, Steyer said on Saturday night, sharing his decision to end his campaign.
Steyer was a self-funding billionaire candidate, as 98 percent of his campaign money came from his own pocket.
He easily overspent other failed presidential candidates. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) spent over $25 million on her failed presidential campaign and former Congressman Beto ORourke (D-TX) spent about $14 million on his attempt to win the presidency. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) wasted over $14 million.
Steyer came in third place in South Carolina with 11.3 percent of the vote and in fifth place in Nevada with 4.7 percent of the vote.
He earned zero delegates.
This has been a great experience, I have zero regrets, Steyer said to his supporters on Saturday

I have the same results but I saved myself $252 million.
Good. Now, can the TV stop showing his scurrilous, duplicitous, lying, and smarmy ads?
Steyer spent hundreds of millions on the billionaires’ version of a DMV Vanity plate.
Adios Thomas, you obnoxious ba$tard!
I’ve read steyer is worth (was worth) just over a billion so this had to hurt.
All the less cash to be used in the Nov down ballot elections.
BS. This POS slurper Cant be honest about anything
Tough toenails Tommy. your campaign shows what a really weak man. you are
LOL....MiniMike has him beat, I think.
Who else has gambled $350M, in Vegas, and lost it, in one night?
Tom says that now, but after it’s really over in November, he may think back about his wasted investment.
It was an unforced error in judgement.
Mini-Mike will be saying the same thing in private.
——but look out-—he and Mini-Mike are going to spend whatever it takes to buy Congress-—
Did Trump even spend $252MM throughout his entire campaign?
Trump did it first and best.
Wait... you're telling me this DIDN'T work!? That old broad with that tat is hot! I don't think I've actually seen anyone wear a plaid tie before.
The dude at the table be like this sh*t is lame, dawg.
A man who made big claims (I will .........., I can .........) but actually did not lay out any specific plans for how he could or would get done anything he was claiming he could do.
He should stay out of government, and his own ability to create a big non-profit doing good deeds on its own should have told him that that work not government, is a better way to go.
Think of all the poore who could have been fed with $252 million.
Yeah its too bad he didnt stay in longer to garner more zero delegates corner
Poor guy. He only has $1.3 billion left after this crap shoot. What’s he gonna live on now?
Maybe he and Bloomberg can get together for a pity party.
The money spent was going to be paid out as taxes so he lost nothing
A fool and his money are soon parted.
Pffftttt! Just a regular weekend at a gun show for most FReepers. Oh, MILLION. I thought it was $250.00
