Andrew Yang is out of the running for mayor of New York

New York City mayor's post

Businessman Andrew Yang, who previously sought the Democratic presidential nomination, has decided to withdraw from the race for mayor of New York City he started this year. The businessman told supporters after Tuesday's Democratic primary election in the biggest US metropolis.

Yang announced his participation in the fight for mayor in January. He said he intends to focus on health care and the economy during the campaign. In addition, Yang, as he did during his presidential campaign last year, promised to implement an unconditional basic income programme.

The primary elections, which will decide the mayoral candidates of each party, were held in New York on Tuesday. Their final results are not expected to be known until mid-July. Right now, among the Democrats, Brooklyn President Eric Adams is leading, according to preliminary estimates by The New York Times. Yang is not in the top three either.

The election for the new mayor is scheduled in New York on 2 November. Many local media note that the winner of the Democratic primary is likely to prevail in the entire race for mayor. Republican politicians in the race are significantly behind the Democrats in popularity. The incumbent mayor of America's largest metropolis, Democrat Bill de Blasio, a two-term incumbent, is not eligible to run again.

Yang was in the last election race for the Democratic nomination for the US presidency. In the end, Joe Biden became the Democratic nominee for head of state. He won the election in November 2020 and is now the US chief of staff.
