A new CBS/YouGov poll that put Steyer at 18 percent in the Democratic field marked the second of the two necessary qualifying polls, the campaign said.

“The race for the Democratic nomination is far from over. We are now entering a critical phase in the primary and next Saturday South Carolina voters will finally have the chance to have their voices heard,” Steyer Campaign Manager Heather Hargreaves said in a statement.

“They know that Tom is the only candidate in the race fighting to return power to communities left behind by Washington through specific policies, including reparations, direct democracy, and term limits for Members of Congress,” Hargreaves added. “On the debate stage Tuesday night, Tom will demonstrate that he is the only candidate who can expose Trump on the economy, put together a diverse coalition that can win in November, and break the corporate stranglehold over our government.”
