Steyer signs up for New Hampshire primary
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Businessman Tom Steyer says the presidential race is more unsettled than it’s ever been.
Steyer, a billionaire progressive activist who was late to join the crowded Democratic field, signed up for the New Hampshire presidential primary Tuesday. He says he won’t be surprised if more candidates get in the race, and that he felt compelled to jump in because other candidates were ignoring what he sees as the key problem facing the nation: a broken government that has been taken over by corporate interests.
Steyer says other candidates are debating issues like health care, education and gun control without realizing they won’t be able to address any of them without first tackling the core problem.
He said term limits in Congress and allowing voters to make laws directly via national referendum would be a start.
