Democratic presidential hopeful Tom Steyer says his campaign is fine but he has to do very well in Nevada's caucuses next week.

The California billionaire has failed to gain any traction in Iowa or New Hampshire. Steyer has spent millions of dollars on television ads and campaign mailers in Nevada. He continued a three-day statewide bus tour Wednesday.

He said any talk about him dropping out of the race is "ridiculous." But he told reporters in Reno Tuesday night that Nevada is "super important." He says it's his neighboring state and has a chance to win.
