Steyer Asks DNC Chair Perez for Extra Polling Time

February 11, 2020

Billionaire presidential hopeful Tom Steyer has requested a polling window extension in a letter to Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez ahead of the next Democrat presidential debate.

“When my campaign received the debate criteria for the next DNC debate in Nevada on January 31st, I was extremely disappointed to see that the Committee has narrowed the polling window significantly,” he wrote. “The previous two polling windows have been 56-58 days and this recent window has been cut to 35 days…

“[M]y campaign met the criteria for the Nevada debate in two Fox news polls that showed my campaign at 15% in South Carolina and 12% in Nevada. I urge you to expand the window or make sure that there is significant polling in those states prior to the next debate. The voters in Nevada and South Carolina deserve to have their voices heard in this process…”

Nationally, Steyer is in 9th place with only 2% support, while his fellow billionaire Michael Bloomberg has surged past Elizabeth Warren to take 3rd place.
