Former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang jumps into race for mayor of New York

Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang officially jumped into the race to be New York City’s next mayor in a campaign video released Wednesday, joining a crowded field of candidates vying to lead the nation’s largest city.

Fellow candidates include former Citigroup executive Raymond McGuire; Shaun Donovan, OMB director under President Obama; former Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams; Scott Stringer, a former city comptroller; and New School professor Maya Wiley, a frequent cable-news legal commentator. Bill de Blasio is unable to run for re-election because of a term limit.

Yang, a Democrat, travels around New York City in the video, which was directed by Brooklyn-born filmmaker Darren Aronofsky. He outlines proposals for the city to take back control of its subway, which is currently operated by the state-run Metropolitan Transportation Authority. And he calls for the creation of a citywide universal basic income, which was a cornerstone of his unsuccessful presidential campaign. In the program he envisions, half a million New Yorkers would receive $2,000 to $5,000 a year, according to the campaign.
