Anti-Trump billionaire Tom Steyer has launched ads in Iowa in an attempt to bully newly-elected Democrat Rep. Abby Finkenauer and 3rd District Democrat Rep. Cindy Axne into joining his Impeach Trump movement.

The Gazette reports:

California billionaire Tom Steyer is targeting Iowa’s new congresswomen in television ads calling on them to join his effort to impeach President Donald Trump.

Stayer’s Need to Impeach campaign has purchased more than $435,000 in television time for ads in markets across Iowa, including Cedar Rapids, Waterloo-Cedar Falls, Dubuque, the Quad Cities, Sioux City and Des Moines. It’s part of a $2.5 million national ad buy targeting Iowa and the three other leadoff states in the 2020 presidential nominating process — New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.

The ad targets newly elected members of Congress, including 1st District Democratic Rep. Abby Finkenauer and 3rd District Democratic Rep. Cindy Axne. Steyer calls on them — and other Democrats — to hold the president accountable by using their power to impeach him by a simple majority vote.

In the 30-second spot scheduled to run Saturday through Jan. 11, Steyer says the 2018 election results show “Americans rose up this November and rejected Donald Trump.” As a result, Trump, “more unhinged by that than ever,” has “declared war on the rule of law.”

However, voters gave Democrats the power to hold Trump in check, Steyer says.

“They just need the will,” he says, asking Iowans to join more than 6 million people supporting Need to Impeach.


Oh, and he is exploring a 2020 Democratic presidential run.
