National polls show a difficult road to the White House for Democratic Presidential Candidate Tom Steyer.
Steyer will join nine other candidates on the debate stage later this month, and he remains confident despite the low polling numbers.
“I’m completely different from everybody else in the race,” Steyer told WTMJ after a forum held at Milwaukee Area Technical College. “I think the job of this election and the job of the next president is to break that corporate stranglehold and I’ve got a ten-year track record of fighting corporations and beating them.”
Steyer spoke to the MATC teacher’s union Wednesday night, which was one of three official campaign stops in Milwaukee.
With less than one year until the election in 2020, Steyer says he’s not backing down now.
“I think it’s a chance for people to hear a variety of views,” he said about the number of candidates remaining. “People do have different opinions on a host of subjects. They also have very different priorities. My number one priority [is] you have to deal with climate change right up front.”
