Steyer’s Campaign Amassed Over 580,000 Sign-ups Since January 3—the Start of the New Congress

(SAN FRANCISCO, January 21, 2019)—The Need to Impeach campaign founded by Tom Steyer has just surpassed 7 million supporters. The milestone comes just 15 months after Steyer launched the campaign through a series of television ads and two weeks after he committed an additional $40 million to pressure the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives to start impeachment proceedings immediately and to convince 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to support impeachment.

“The American public has had enough of the career criminal residing in the White House,” said Steyer. “Since before taking office, Trump has used the White House to enrich himself and his family at all costs while ignoring the rule of law and eroding our democratic institutions. I and seven million people urge Congress to act and start impeachment proceeding immediately.”

Steyer’s $40 million investment includes the launch of a comprehensive public education initiative, town halls across the country, an impeachment summit in Washington, D.C., and mobilizing millions of new supporters to continue pushing their representatives to support impeachment. These efforts will have an emphasis on supporters in House districts held by Reps. Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, Richard Neal, Jerrold Nadler, and Elijah Cummings, who chair key committees responsible for oversight and investigations into Mr. Trump’s corrupt activities, and in states with Republican Senators up for re-election in 2020.

Steyer launched the Need to Impeach campaign on October 20, 2017, through national television and social media ads. With more than 7 million people, several political strategists call it one of the most powerful, active political groups in the Democratic party.
