According, Yang decided to pull back following the New Hampshire primary. “I am a numbers guy,” Yang said. “In most of these [upcoming] states, which makes sticking around not necessarily helpful or productive in terms of furthering the goals of this campaign.” He added that he's open to becoming another candidate's running mate in the future.
“If I become persuaded that there's a particular candidate that gives us a superior chance of beating Donald Trump, and I think it's important to make that opinion known, then I would consider it for sure,” Yang added.. Some people have thanked Yang for giving it his best try, while others are pretty much imploding. Check out a few reactions below.
