Billionaire Tom Steyer Joins Crowded Democrat Presidential Field
Billionaire Tom Steyer has decided that the presidential field on the Democrat side did not have a winner in it, so he has decided to join.

The staunch anti-Trump environmentalist who has lead impeach Trump efforts to no avail decided to change his mind and in fact run for the Democrat party presidential nomination.

According to Fox News:

WASHINGTON – Billionaire activist Tom Steyer is joining the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, reversing course after deciding earlier this year that he would forgo a run.

Steyer made the announcement Tuesday, casting himself as an outsider who will oppose what he calls "the hostile corporate takeover of our democracy."

The 62-year-old from California is one of the most visible and deep-pocketed liberals advocating for President Donald Trump's impeachment. He surprised many Democrats in January when he declared he would focus entirely on the impeachment effort instead of seeking the White House.

Since then, Steyer has said he's grown frustrated at the pace at which the Democratic-controlled House is approaching Trump.

Steyer has made a surprising move by not mentioning impeaching Trump in his campaign announcement, despite spending millions of dollars in an effort to do so.
