Andrew Yang was a 2020 Presidential candidate.
Since he left the race, he’s been a commentator on CNN, founded Humanity Forward and hosts a podcast called Yang Speaks. His guests on that podcast have been both interesting and varied. Some of them were his biggest supporters, but some were critics.
In recent days, he’s been staying in Georgia to help with the senatorial race.
On Dec. 21, 2020, in this video, he notes that he was in talks with the Biden campaign, but those didn’t seem to go anywhere, so he told the Biden campaign to continue their search for someone.
Yang has filed papers to run for mayor of NYC. He’s been seen filming a commercials for running for mayor. As far as I know, he hasn’t announced it yet.
The Hill has announced [youtube] a couple times that he leads the polls of the NYC mayoral candidates.
The Yang Gang seems torn about whether a mayoral run will work toward the advantage of the issues they’re trying to push through which are largely UBI and human centered capitalism. If Yang runs for mayor, he’ll probably have to skip the 2024 Presidential race. That would mean waiting until 2028. But some people say that the issues could be tested on NYC.
We’ll see what happens to his political future.
