Steyer is among a large list of potential candidates for the Democratic Party’s nomination in 2020. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren threw her hat into the ring when she announced an exploratory committee on Monday. She is set to visit Iowa this weekend. Other possible candidates are expected to announce their plans over the next few weeks.

Steyer’s tour could be a make-or-break stretch for his presidential ambitions. The billionaire generated name recognition by imploring congressional leaders to impeach President Donald Trump. His organization Need to Impeach’s petition has received over 6.5 million signatures. It isn’t certain, however, whether Steyer’s message resonated with Democrats, since recent polling shows him at the bottom of the pack of prospective 2020 candidates.

Steyer will be traveling in the early part of this year to Des Moines, Iowa; Las Vegas; and a city in New Hampshire as part of his larger “5 Rights” tour, Andre Hurst, his chief spokeswoman, said in an email. In a follow-up email, she declined to name the New Hampshire city and noted that Steyer’s team would be announcing details in coming weeks.

While it is unclear the exact dates of when Steyer will be hosting his next set of town hall meetings, the original press release describing his platform said he planned to travel to “host a series of conversations” in December and January. Steyer unveiled the “5 Rights” after investing $120 million into the 2018 congressional midterm campaign, helping Democrats recapture the House of Representatives.
