Once a presidential candidate, Andrew Yang has taken an official step towards his next political goal.

The democrat has filed paperwork Campaign Finance Board to run for mayor of Next York City.

The former tech executive joins a field of dozens of mayoral candidates. All are vying to lead the pandemic-stricken city as it faces skyrocketing unemployment and a budget crunch.
