Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur and philanthropist from New York City who ran a surprisingly effective long-shot Democratic primary campaign in the 2020 Presidential election. He was noted for his quirky, upbeat campaigning style and raucous online fanbase.
New York mayor Bill de Blasio is ineligible to run for re-election in November 2021 due to term limits. With 70% of New York voters registered as Democrats to only 10% Republicans, the election to replace him is in effect the Democratic Party mayoral primary on June 22, 2021. There are already several strong declared and potential candidates, including Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. Yang has confirmed that he is actively considering a bid.
Will Andrew Yang run for mayor of New York in 2021?
Will Andrew Yang declare his intention to run for Mayor in the 2021 New York City municipal Democratic primary election?
This question resolves positively if Andrew Yang states clearly that he will run for Mayor of New York before the Democratic primary filing deadline on April 26th. It resolves negatively if this date passes without such a statement, if Yang runs as in independent or under another party, or if Yang states clearly that he will not be running. Resolution should be supported by credible media reports.
