Democratic presidential candidate and billionaire climate activist Tom Steyer warned that the world could “literally” end if Republicans win in 2020.

Speaking at the Ohio Democratic Party state dinner on Sunday, the long shot candidate suggested that Republicans will try to cheat in 2020, but if they lose they’ll be “done forever” because Democrats are going to make elections “fair.”

“We are in the fight of our lives,” Mr. Steyer said. “Everything is on the table in 2020. [Republicans] think so, too, because they think if they lose in 2020 the rules are going to be fair and they’re never going to win again. And they’re right. If we win in 2020, they’re done forever.

“But it’s scary for us, too, because if they win, literally it could be the end of the world,” he said.

Mr. Steyer, who is polling at 1.4% nationally, will participate in his first Democratic presidential primary debate Tuesday.
