Tom Steyer, California Billionaire, Says He Won't Run for Office in 2018

California billionaire plans to spend $30 million of his money to elect Democrats in 2018

Democratic activist Tom Steyer's $30 million effort to mobilize young voters and flip control of the House will carry a "big presence" in Florida, an organizer tells the Tampa Bay Times.

Steyer said this week that he will make a "major announcement" about his future political endeavors on Monday, which could include a possible for California's governor or for the Senate.

"Donald Trump's election awoke a sleeping giant in our political discourse".

Steyer has gained additional attention in recent months with a $20-million nationwide campaign urging Congress to impeach President Trump. He demanded Democratic lawmakers and candidates pledge to push for the impeachment of Trump if they take control of Congress this year, but a Demember vote to move forward on impeachment received votes from just 58 out of 435 members of the House, bringing Steyer's tab to $344,827.59 per vote.

NextGen America on Monday announced what it says will be "the largest youth organizing program in American history" across Florida and nine other states: Virginia, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, California, Pennsylvania, Iowa, New Hampshire and Arizona.
