On Tuesday, February 11, Andrew Yang, an entrepreneur, dropped out of the 2020 presidential race. Yang decided that it was the time after disappointing performances in the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire Primary, where he failed to receive any delegates. He was one of the most relatable candidates, wearing a pin on his suit that read ‘Math’. In his last speech, he said to his supporters, “‘ I am the math guy, and it is clear tonight from the numbers that we are not going to win this race. So tonight I am announcing that I am suspending my campaign.'”

Yang joined Governor Deval Patrick and Senator Michael Bennet as the candidates who dropped out Tuesday. The two frontrunners who have stood out from the crowd are Senator Bernie Sanders and Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Buttigieg won the Iowa caucus with Sanders close behind. In the New Hampshire primary, it was the exact opposite. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the Democratic field, “I can’t even envision a situation where he would be reelected. But we are not, we don’t take anything for granted. As I say, we have to have our own vision for the future. But everybody knows that we must be unified in making sure that he does not have a second term.”
