There have been rumors for weeks about failed Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang taking a shot at running for office in New York.
This week, he made it official.
Yang has officially thrown his name into the hat for the New York City mayoral race.
Breaks His Heart
Yang, like many Americans, is upset at the state of New York City under the guidance of Bill de Blasio.
Yang, while never really a true threat in the presidential race, became a bit of a cult favorite for his promise of universal basic income for everyone of $1,000 per month.
Now he wants to take that same agenda and bring it to New York.
I moved to New York City 25 years ago. I came of age, fell in love, and became a father here. Seeing our City in so much pain breaks my heart.

Current Mayor Bill de Blasio is in his second term and cannot run for re-election.
Most believe Yang is now the clear frontrunner of the race.
