Tom Steyer has already spent $1 million on ads one day into 2020 bid

Democrat Billionaire Tom Steyer is officially running for president, and his Day One expenditures are absolutely eye-popping.

Here’s the low-down from The New York Post

Tom Steyer spent about $1 million on political ads in the first four primary and caucus states on Tuesday – the same day he launched his bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination, according to a report.

The California billionaire, who’s been waging a national campaign to impeach President Trump, bought $1.05 million worth of broadcast ads in the biggest cities in Iowa, Nevada, and South Carolina, as well as Boston, which covers New Hampshire, NBC News reported, citing data provided by Advertising Analytics.

It will be interesting to see whether he maintains that pace (or anything close to it) as the campaign progresses.
