This diversity is what makes the States so important, Steyer, said in a separate interview with CBS News’ “Face the Nation”.

“These two States reflect the kind of diversity that is America, and that is the “democratic party,” he said. “And I think that whoever is the candidate must be able to show that he or she will pull together a number of the big tent of the democratic party.”
