May 28, 2020

Billionaire businessman and former Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer is putting some support behind Joe Biden in New Hampshire.

NextGen New Hampshire, a chapter of a political group founded by Steyer, endorsed Biden on Wednesday. May 27. The organization will use its $1.5 million investment to help Biden in the Granite State, which nowadays is a slightly Democratic-leaning swing state in national politics.

“Joe Biden is the leader our country needs right now. While Donald Trump is exacerbating our current economic and health care crisis, Biden sets himself apart as a leader that will listen to young people, scientists, and experts to get our country back on track,” said NextGen New Hampshire press secretary Dan Bristol, according to The Union Leader. “The stakes of this election couldn’t be higher. Young people are going to be the margin in this election, and NextGen New Hampshire is ready to lead the way in turning out young people for Joe Biden.”

Nationally, the organization aims to register 300,000 people ages 18 to 35 to vote.
