Trump, Steyer Talk Impeachment in Ads
Groups Mention Impeachment Issue In House Races;
Total Ad Spending Approaches $300 Million in Presidential Race
…Tom Steyer has spent $8.5 million on 18,847 ads mentioning impeachment, which constitute 18 percent of his ad airings since declaring his candidacy. These ads do not count the efforts of Need to Impeach, the super PAC founded by Steyer (from which he has stepped down), which aired over $3 million in ads during the first half of the year that called for Trump’s impeachment…
This morning, from Iowa:

One reason I’m on the Steyer bus is that people often ask me “who is actually considering voting for Steyer?” One answer from today’s first town hall: An Iowan who told me she voted for Trump in 2016 and thinks other Democrats are too obsessed with impeaching him.
Yeah, I know.

Dave Weigel was literally on Tom Steyer’s (D) campaign bus, following his campaign in Iowa.

This will be the introductory paragraph in the comprehensive late 21st Century multi-volume scholarly work, “The Fall of the American Empire”.

Some of the other responses:
Well at least we know the electorate is highly informed.
‘That billionaire that put out pro-impeachment commercials in Trump’s first year was too obsessed with impeachment, but this Tom Steyer fellow is different…’
OMG, this is almost like the Trump supporter who told me he supported Trump because “he’s going to protect us from the Russians”!
See Television ads do move the needle….lol
People who voted for Trump aren’t going to elect a Democrat.
Voters (shakes head). I just can’t (shakes head again).
It took me longer than it should have to laugh at that.
… did you tell her?
I just hit myself in the head with my own keyboard. This country is full of idiots.
And this is why the Democratic Party nominee shouldn’t waste their time on Trump voters.
