Billionaire presidential hopeful Tom Steyer spent $6.5 million for each minute of speaking time he received during Tuesday's Democratic debate.

Steyer, who has been accused of buying his way onto the debate stage, spent roughly $47.6 million of his own money since entering the crowded primary field in July. He garnered 7 minutes and 13 seconds of speaking time for his first debate. All told, Steyer spent just under $110,000 for each second he controlled the microphone.
