“When I watched TV last night, all I saw were two billionaires’ ads,” Klobuchar said on ABC’s “The View.”

“For a lot of the people that aren’t in the early states, they must think two people are running,” she said, arguing that other candidates can’t afford to fund expensive television ads.

“I don’t think America looks at the guy in the White House and says, ‘Let’s find someone richer,’” she said.

Klobuchar argued that as one of only two Democratic presidential candidates from the Midwest, she is best positioned to win over swing voters who backed Trump in 2016.

“I’m someone who can bring those votes in,” she said.

Steyer, who has an estimated net worth of $1.6 billion, made most of his money operating a hedge fund in California.

Bloomberg, the founder of Bloomberg L.P. who later was elected to three terms as mayor of New York City, said when announcing his White House bid last month that his campaign would be self-funded and he would not accept any donations.

“You just can’t simply allow wealthy people to come in and buy elections,” Klobuchar said.
