Andrew Yang Announces His New York City Mayoral Run

Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang is running for mayor of New York City. 

During his bid for the presidency, he proposed the concept of a universal basic income, giving each American one thousand dollars a month. 

He is now talking about a similar plan for New York City. 

The Democratic challenger would be only the second Asian-American candidate to run for the office and make it onto the ballot. Yang moved to the city 25 years ago.
