Andrew Yang Says He Will Support the Democratic Nominee, Will Not Make an Endorsement Yet

Since dropping out of the race, Andrew Yang has expressed that he is not going anywhere and will “not rule out running for office again.”

“We’ll be back,” he tweeted late Tuesday.

The entrepreneur dropped out of the race to become the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee on Thursday as votes rolled in for the first-in-the-nation primary in New Hampshire. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) held a narrow win, with former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg a close second.

Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Wednesday, Yang shared how he believes he left the party’s candidates remembering “we can’t just run against Trump, we have to run against the reasons that got him elected, that he is a symptom of a disease that’s been building up in our communities for years.”

Asked if he is endorsing anyone in hopes of defeating President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, Yang responded, “I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is. … so no endorsements right now.”

He also noted 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls have reached out to him since dropped his bid.

When asked if he would run again for president in the future, Yang answered, “I’m not going away, the Yang Gang’s not going away, so the plan is to keep on pushing the ideas of this campaign across the finish line. So we’re not going anywhere.”

Since dropping out of the race, Yang has received kind words from other 2020 Democratic contenders.

Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), another 2020 Democratic hopeful, also ended his campaign on Tuesday.

  1. I’m sad to see Andrew Yang go. He was a voice of reason (even if policies like UBI were BS) and held a different vision for the Dims.

    I wonder why not a single Dim voice, with their bizarre and insane concept of “turns” (q.v. Hillary) did not speak out in support of him. He certainly embraced socialist values with UBI and spoke about “not blaming Trump for all ills”. That may have been his undoing. The Left needs a boogeyman to cover for its own failings.
