Andrew Yang To Launch Third Political Party

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Andrew Yang no longer considers himself a Democrat and is planning to launch a third political party next month, according to Politico. The former Democratic presidential and New York City mayoral candidate will launch the new party in tandem with the release of his new book "Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy" on Oct. 5. Yang's book will outline "bold new ideas" that will help the country move past the current “era of institutional failure.” Some of the main talking points include "data rights, ranked-choice voting and fact-based governance empowered by modern technology."

Coverage from right-rated outlets was more likely to highlight how Yang will "abandon Democrats" and some of his "non-traditional positions for a Democrat" such as denouncing the Defund the Police movement and taking a pro-Israel stance amid attacks from Hamas terrorists back in May.
