Steyer, a billionaire, is in his first political campaign, but he told Kavanaugh he's been working behind the scenes on other campaigns and voter turnout efforts for years. He says climate change is the single biggest issue of his campaign and he has big plans to fundamentally change Washington.

Steyer and Kavanaugh met up at the Tatte Bakery near South Station in Boston. He says he wants voters to set aside the billionaire stereotype and get to know him as a person and what he stands for.
