The New York Daily News reports:
He’s in. Andrew Yang, who rose to prominence during a longshot presidential run, is throwing his hat into next year’s mayoral race. The City Campaign Finance Board confirmed that Yang registered his campaign on Wednesday. For months, city politicos have been speculating that Yang might jump into the race, which already boasts a crowded field.
As of Wednesday, candidates include city Comptroller Scott Stringer, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, former Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia, Mayor de Blasio’s former legal adviser Maya Wiley, and former HUD secretary Shaun Donovan.
2021 is going to be epic.
