Andrew Yang Joins 32 Others in the Race To Become NYC’s Next Mayor And Polls Show He Could Win

Posted By NYC Newswire

Recent Presidential candidate, Andrew Yang, officially threw his hat in the ring in an attempt to become New York City’s next mayor. Yang filed paperwork with the Campaign Finance Board, as he joins 32 others who have filed paperwork to run for Mayor of New York City.

According to the Daily News, Yang’s political consultant Chris Coffey described the move as not an “official” signal that he’s running, but merely a “procedural thing.”  “We aren’t accepting donations,” he said. “No status change.”

A recent poll by Public Policy Polling shows Andrew Yang with a slight 1 point lead over Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who was just listed as the Leading Candidate in the Mayor’s race.

NYC’s primary election will be on June 22 next year.
