Steyer Spent $6.2 Million for Every Minute of Debate Speaking Time


Tom Steyer spent $6.2 million for every minute of speaking time he garnered in Wednesday night’s Democratic presidential debate in Atlanta, which is just over $133,000 per second.

The California billionaire, who is self-financing his campaign, had 8 minutes and 24 seconds of speaking time, ranking next-to-last for the night ahead of entrepreneur Andrew Yang. Steyer finished dead last among the candidates in speaking time in his first debate in October.

To estimate this figure, the Washington Free Beacon combined the $47.6 million Steyer spent in the second quarter and the $4.7 million he spent on social media in October and November, as reported by Google and Facebook.
