You haven’t seen the last of Andrew Yang.
The surprising Democratic presidential candidate has not addressed rumors that he could run for Gracie Mansion in 2021.
But he didn’t exactly douse them either by insisting that he will “certainly” consider another run for public office again after dropping out of the race to unseat President Trump.
“I’m not going away. The Yang Gang is not going away,” Yang said CNN, referring to his dedicated group of supporters. “So the plan is to keep on pushing the ideas of this campaign across the finish line. So we’re not going anywhere.”
“I would certainly not rule out running for office again,” Yang added.
The entrepreneur said: “See you back in New York,” without elaborating.
The interview came just hours after Yang pulled the plug on his campaign, offering a slice of Arnold Schwarzenegger swagger on the way out.
“We’ll be back,” he declared.
Yang is based in New York and could bring his enthusiastic following to play in the 2021 mayoral race. But he has no local political base in the Big Apple.
Unlike other political neophytes, like Michael Bloomberg in 2001, Yang is not wealthy enough to self-fund a campaign.
