DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Billionaire investor and Democratic activist Tom Steyer will not run for president in 2020. Steyer, who has paid for television ads calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, said Wednesday at an event in Des Moines, Iowa, that "the impeachment question has reached an inflection point," and he planned to spend his time, effort and resources working toward that. The decision comes as a surprise, given Steyer had been traveling the country promoting his political platform.
