Skip to comments.Tom Steyer is Bidenís biggest threat
Posted on 07/15/2019 6:55:10 AM PDT by Kaslin
President Trumps impeachment organizer Tom Steyer has joined the race to become the Democratic presidential nominee with a pledge to spend $100 million of his own billion-dollar fortune. While it will not put him any closer to defeating Donald Trump, it does likely close the door on former Vice President Joe Biden winning the nomination.
Steyers notoriety comes from donating the billions he has made investing in fossil fuels, private prisons and subprime lending companies into progressive activism for impeaching President Trump and reckless environmental policies.
He will be pushing the same radical, job-killing climate change ideas that those defining the progressive agenda such as New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senators Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have been screaming for. The difference is Steyers pledge to spend $100 million means he will be a loud voice that voters will hear and see.
Steyers spending doesnt guarantee voters will get behind his candidacy, but it does mean Biden will have to fend off attacks on his pragmatism or risk losing ground to Harris, Warren or Sanders.
He also ensures the eventual Democratic nominee will have to put economic socialism and environmental recklessness at the forefront of his or her message.
To date, Bidens weakening support has been as much a matter of his own missteps as specific attacks by other candidates. His opponents have already increased attention to his record on race, his age, and not being connected to todays Democratic Party not to mention his propensity for being overly touchy.

“Steyers notoriety comes from donating the billions he has made investing in fossil fuels, private prisons and subprime lending companies into progressive activism for impeaching President Trump and reckless environmental policies.”
Lefties will just LOVE those investments, I’m sure.
So a 60-plus white billionaire is the main threat to the 70-plus white millionaire front runner for the Democrat nomination? Ain’t that some poop!
In the sense that Steyer can go toe-to-toe with the very best fundraising the DNC can produce for Biden, the article is on-spot.
I’ve seen Steyer speak on television.
He is insane.
Then again, he’s a democrat.
LOL - what a 'progressive' ... private prisons, payday loans, big oil... plus he doesn't have the balls to take on Biden.
Swalwell whose big idea was to nuke gun owners - literally, he said this - got out of the clown car and now Steyer who is if anything even more unhinged is getting in.
LOL! What a chitshow the donkeys are.
Wonder if that is his goal?
Money talks in Politics...
Why vote for the puppets, when you can vote for the puppet master?
The only threat Steyer poses is to himself ... he has the personality of a wart.
Steyer’s won’t be on the Dem debate stage, so as far as i can tell, his “declaration” is little more than a publicity stunt ...

Yes, the President is which is fine with us. It's the RATS who claim that rich people are the problem.
