"A youth voting bloc that will be the X factor in a wave to remaking our understanding of what it is to be an American", Mr. Steyer said. He then spent $91 million on the 2016 election which resulted in Republicans maintaining complete control of Congress and Republican President Donald Trump moving to the White House.
"I believe that the most important task for me, the task that I feel called to do.is organizing and mobilizing America's voters".
For this year's midterm campaign, Steyer's group set goals of registering 250,000 young voters and helping to elect progressive House candidates in at least 10 states. If he had run, he would have been her second major Democratic challenger - state Senate leader Kevin de León announced a run in October.
Steyer also said that he would continue to "redouble" his efforts to promote the impeachment of President Donald Trump. A resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, there had been speculation that he was considering a challenge to Dianne Feinstein for the U.S. Senate in California this year.
In the last five years, Steyer has turned his attention to environmental and political issues.
The billionaire environmentalist, who has already backed several anti-Trump television ads pushing for impeachment, is one of the Democratic Party's wealthiest donors.
"I look forward to his continued activism in the months ahead as we campaign to take back both chambers of Congress to protect the nation from the unsafe Trump agenda", she said.
The mid-term elections will be a "fierce battle for the soul of America", Steyer said. He's spent more than $20 million in that effort.
The Republican National Committee dismissed Steyer's spending saying he could "light as much of his money on fire as wants", arguing that Democrats have criticized his impeachment message as a distraction.
The House impeaches, or brings formal charges against an official, in what would be the first step in removing Trump from office.
When asked if he would support Oprah, Steyer said his focus is on the midterms. "We will vote to protect what truly makes this country great", he said.
