Bullock accuses Steyer of buying his way onto Democratic debate stage

'We’re kidding ourselves if we’re calling a $10 million purchase of 130,000 donors a demonstration of grassroots support,' Bullock said.

13.8.2019

Gov. Bullock accuses fellow Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer, a billionaire hedge fund manager and liberal megadonor, of buying his way into the third presidential debate.

'We’re kidding ourselves if we’re calling a $10 million purchase of 130,000 donors a demonstration of grassroots support,' Bullock said.

Bullock then released an extended statement on Steyer, whose campaign announced earlier Tuesday that he had hit the 130,000 donor requirement and was just one qualifying poll away from being assured a spot on the Sept. 12-13 debate stage in Houston.

"We’re kidding ourselves if we’re calling a $10 million purchase of 130,000 donors a demonstration of grassroots support," Bullock said."It’s not serving the candidates, and it sure isn’t helping the voters who will actually decide this election."
