The 2020 presidential campaign of Tom Steyer began on July 9, 2019, when Steyer stated that he would be running in the Democratic primaries in an online campaign video.[1]

Steyer has been seen as a potential presidential candidate in the 2020 election. In January 2019, Steyer traveled to Iowa to announce that he was not running for president.[2]

He dropped out of the race after losing the South Carolina primary on February 29, 2020.[3] Steyer spent $250 million of his own money on his campaign. This was more than any other candidate in history, except Mike Bloomberg's campaign.[4]
