Polling and pundits are slowly beating the drum of imminent Democrat defeat in the midterms more than five months from Election Day. In fact, nearly every report from Fox News to MSNBC has practically sealed the coffin on the Democrat majority in the U.S. Senate. And though even the most respected political scientists have said Republicans are the odds-on favorite to win back the Senate, it’s still way too early to call this one.
You’d be amazed at what $100 million from wealthy liberals like Tom Steyer could do to influence the outcome of the 2014 midterms.
And that’s exactly what he’s willing to spend to hold onto the Senate and advance his big government agenda. According to POLITICO, Steyer is hosting a high-dollar fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee at his San Francisco home with Vice President Joe Biden at the end of May.
In addition to hosting that event, Steyer is also going to use his super PAC — NextGen Climate Action — to raise and spend more than $100 million toward the midterm elections this year. Already this year, Steyer has contributed more than $9 million to his super PAC.
