Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer speaks at a campaign event at The Hub in Council Bluffs on January 21, 2020.

In January 2019, billionaire businessman Tom Steyer originally said he wouldn’t run for president but he changed his mind later that summer. Steyer was behind the Need to Impeach organization that pushed for the impeachment of President Donald Trump and he also started NextGen America which focuses on progressive issues including climate and mobilizing young voters. Iowa Public Radio’s Clay Masters spoke with Steyer before a campaign event in Council Bluffs on Tuesday.
