Billionaire Democratic donor and environmentalist Tom Steyer will not run for any political office in 2018, instead outlining plans to sink tens of millions of dollars into an aggressive effort to flip the House majority to the Democrats. Steyer said he'll use his money similarly in 2018. He then spent $91 million on the 2016 election which resulted in Republicans maintaining complete control of Congress and Republican President Donald Trump moving to the White House.

"The task which I feel called to do is organizing and mobilizing America's voters - they have got to be the most powerful forces in American politics", Steyer said at a Washington press conference.

Steyer said that he's investing $30 million in NextGen Rising's youth organizing program and will help register, engage and mobilize more than 250,000 young voters to participate in this year's midterm elections. Dianne Feinstein for her seat later this year.

"He's running. He's been running", Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) told Politico in late 2016 during a conversation about Steyer's spending on voter registration efforts.

Steyer has recently turned his focus to advocating for President Donald Trump's impeachment. His goal is to remove President Trump from office calling him a "clear and president danger".

"This tide will wash away the stain of the Trump administration, and it will not recede until America lives up to its founding creed, until we guarantee equal treatment, dignity and respect to every American", Steyer said.

"I look forward to his continued activism in the months ahead as we campaign to take back both chambers of Congress to protect the nation from the risky Trump agenda", she said. He said Monday that he expects to spend at least another $20 million on the effort.

"We now know that the Oval Office can not reshape a man who does not believe in constitutional democracy", Steyer said. When asked about the 2020 elections-and who he could support-he declined to look beyond the immediate horizon of the midterm elections. But, we believe this is a false choice, the fact is the two are fundamentally intertwined.
