Steyer said on ABC’s “This Week” that his on-the-ground support in Nevada and South Carolina, which are “dramatically more diverse” than Iowa or New Hampshire, could give him the necessary momentum.

“What it also says is that I’m putting together a coalition of people, including specifically African Americans and Latinos, who are responding to a message that is inclusive,” he said. “And I’m putting together the kind of coalition that we’re going to have to have in November 2020 to beat Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate advances public lands bill in late-night vote Warren, Democrats urge Trump to back down from veto threat over changing Confederate-named bases Esper orders ‘After Action Review’ of National Guard’s role in protests MORE.”

“If I can show there that I can put together a coalition and take that with momentum into Super Tuesday with the kind of diverse coalition that I believe I’m building and I believe I will show, then that will give me the momentum and people will have to look at me as a serious candidate,” he said. 

Steyer finished in Iowa with 0 percent of the vote and no delegates after spending $16.4 million on ads in the state. In New Hampshire, he received 4 percent of the vote but zero delegates after funneling $19.8 million on ads there.
