Andrew Yang Ends Presidential Run

Following a disappointing showing in Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, Andrew Yang has dropped out of the Democratic primary for president, the Washington Post reports.

Yang made a universal basic income of $1,000 per month a central feature of his campaign.

“I am a numbers guy,” Yang said in an interview before addressing supporters at Manchester’s Puritan Backroom, according to the Washington Post. “In most of these [upcoming] states, I’m not going to be at a threshold where I get delegates, which makes sticking around not necessarily helpful or productive in terms of furthering the goals of this campaign.”

Yang said he was undecided as to whether he would endorse another candidate.

Yang’s departure leaves former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick as the last person of color in the race.
