To little fanfare, the super PAC founded by liberal climate change activist Tom Steyer has amassed $13 million of the California billionaire’s own money this election cycle — so far. That outpaces the $9.3 million Steyer gave his outside group, Next Gen Climate Action Committee, by this point in 2014.
Very little of that money has gone toward directly influencing the presidential race, however. Though he’s the biggest liberal megadonor so far this cycle, unlike George Soros and Haim and Cheryl Saban, Steyer hasn’t contributed money to Priorities USA Action — the super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Soros and the Sabans have personally given Priorities $7 million and $5 million so far, respectively.
