California businessman and environmentalist Tom Steyer ended his presidential campaign Saturday night following a third place finish in South Carolina’s Democratic primary.

Steyer launched a long-shot campaign in July, becoming one of 29 Democrats to run for president, of which five remain.  Over the course of his nearly eight months in the race, Steyer spent over $250 million of his own money, according to Open Secrets. In other words, Steyer  spent roughly 1/6th of his net worth to earn zero delegates. Steyer has been criticized for spending hundreds of millions of dollars in a doomed effort to win the presidency.
