Billionaire Tom Steyer failed to generate much momentum after the Democrats’ early contests in Iowa and New Hampshire, but he’s poised for better results in Nevada and South Carolina and he credits that to more than just money.
“I’ve spent more time in Nevada than any other candidate, and I’ve spent more time in South Carolina than any other candidate,” Steyer told ABC News’ “This Week” on Sunday.
“I’ve actually been spending the time and we have people on the ground in both states, from those states, actually going out, talking to people, organizing, listening and coming up with a message that matters,” he said.
“That’s really why I’m doing well in Nevada and South Carolina, because I’ve put in the time, listened to the people, and I’m talking to their actual issues.”
Steyer also noted that Nevada and South Carolina were more diverse than Iowa and New Hampshire.
