Was Tom Steyer’s Campaign the Worst in Presidential History?

2020 Presidential candidate Tom Styer dropped out of the race this weekend on the heels of the results in from South Carolina.

But, as the Globe reports, a strong case can be made that Steyer just concluded the worst campaign in the history of presidential politics.

According to the FEC, Steyer spent over $253 million – which breaks down to around $3,300 per vote but failed to merit a single delegate in the first three contests.

According to the New York Times, Steyer spent over $18 million on television alone in the South Carolina.

Steyer’s campaign spending has been so excessive that the Times reports that his name has “turned into a verb” – local activists refer to a candidate foolishly overpaying as “steyering.”
