NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Andrew Yang suspended his bid for the White House Tuesday night, but some are suggesting his political future might not be over.

Yang dropped out of the 2020 race when the polls closed in New Hampshire and soon after the news was announced, some Democrats in New York City took to Twitter to suggest he set his sights on City Hall.

Howard Wolfson, a top advisor for presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, wrote that Yang “would make a very interesting candidate” for mayor.

The New York Times asked Yang if he would consider it, and the 45-year-old replied that he “wouldn’t rule anything out.”

Yang was born in Schenectady, New York and attended Columbia Law School in Manhattan during the 1990s.

If he decides to run for mayor, he will join a growing field of candidates looking to replace Bill de Blasio in 2021, including Council Speaker Corey Johnson, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and City Comptroller Scott Stringer.
