    Former Democratic presidential candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang used the Memorial Day weekend to advocate for a four-day workweek on Twitter. "3-Day weekends are better than 2-Day weekends. We should seriously look at 4-day workweeks. Studies show that we would be just as productive. It would create jobs at the margins and improve mental health," Yang tweeted Monday.

    Score one for former Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders and Andrew Yang. A federal appeals court on Tuesday agreed with a lower federal court judge’s ruling that the Democratic presidential primary contest must be included on the ballot when New York holds its primary on June 23. *snip* Sanders, the populist senator from Vermont, suspended his presidential campaign in April and endorsed presumptive nominee Joe Biden a week later. But Sanders pledged to keep his name on the ballot in all upcoming primaries and caucuses to accumulate as many delegates as possible at this summer’s convention.

    Joe Biden celebrated his crushing victory over Bernie Sanders in Michigan — and in Mississippi, Missouri and Idaho too — by thanking him for running and hinting it was time for him to quit. “I want to thank Bernie Sanders and his supporters for their tireless energy and their passion. We share a common goal and together we’ll defeat Donald Trump — we’ll defeat him together,” Biden said in Philadelphia a little bit before 11 p.m. after his planned rally in Cleveland was canned due to coronavirus fears. Biden pivoted to a general election argument by hitting President Trump over...

    Andrew Yang became the latest former 2020 candidate to announce their endorsement of former Vice President Joe Biden. "I believe that Joe Biden will be the Democratic nominee and I've said I was always going to support whoever the nominee is. I hereby am endorsing Joe Bien to be not just the nominee of Democratic party, but for the next president of the United States," Yang told a CNN panel on Tuesday night. Yang, who became a CNN commentator after withdrawing from the 2020 race in February, said he previously supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in 2016, calling him an...

    Andrew Yang's still got his eye on the White House ... because he'd be stoked to be Joe Biden's vice president. The former presidential hopeful joined us on "TMZ Live" Thursday and we asked if he'd say yes to an offer to be Biden's running mate if Joe's the nominee. Andrew tells us he'd jump at the chance, and thinks he could bring a lot to the table. The way Andrew sees it, he could help Biden in some areas where he could be lacking ... namely, appealing to younger voters. Andrew says the Yang Gang makes him feel young,...

    CBS Sacramento ^ | 02/25/2020
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A state lawmaker has introduced a universal basic income bill that would give every Californian $1,000 per month. AB 2712 was introduced by Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Silicon Valley) on Thursday. The bill would create a California Universal Basic Income Program (CalUBI) where residents over 18-years-old would receive $1,000 per month. As written, the bill would only exempt people who are already getting Medi-Cal, County Medical Services Program, CalFresh, CalWorks or Unemployment Insurance from getting the universal basic income. Low’s bill would pay for the CalUBI program with a 10 percent value-added tax on goods and services in...

    Andrew Yang and the 'Yang Gang' built his candidacy up to be a last ditch effort against a technological apocalypse. Now he's a CNN talker. What a sad ending to the Andrew Yang saga. Andrew Yang just signed on to CNN as a political commentator. He follows in the footsteps of many flunked presidential candidates. CNN finally has a Don Lemon for smart people. Presidential aspirant Andrew Yang threw in the towel after the New Hampshire primary. He conceded that as “the math guy” in the race, he had to acknowledge his numbers don’t look good in Super Tuesday states.

    With entrepreneur Andrew Yang out of the race, the big question is which candidate his supporters will now back.

    President Trump could be the unlikely benefactor of Andrew Yang ending his White House bid — a new poll finding he is the second-most popular alternative among the Yang Gang. Of the 200 Yang supporters surveyed in the hours after the businessman threw in the towel at Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, 11 percent of people said they would now support re-electing Trump, the Stanford University/Reality Check study obtained by The Post found. Democrat socialist Bernie Sanders was still the preferred alternative with 33 percent of the disbanded “Yang Gang,” but the survey showed supporters of the zany tech entrepreneur were...

    Granite State Democrats desperately want to pick a candidate who can beat Trump, but they’re not sure anyone on the primary ballot can do it. MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — It would be easy to mistake the feverish activity in New Hampshire over the past week for excitement. The state has been abuzz with Democratic presidential campaign events, armies of canvassers knocking on doors, curious voters from neighboring states coming to get a look at the candidates, and here in Manchester, swarms of reporters and camera crews.But when you talk to voters, the overarching feeling isn’t excitement or optimism, but anxiety....

    Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) said Sunday on MSNBC that the 2020 presidential hopefuls who are white had “blemishes on their record about their relationships with black people.” When asked about 2020 hopeful Pete Buttigieg, Waters said, “You know, one’s record will speak for itself. If there are facts about what he has done or what he has not done, then he’s going to have to try and make people, you know, believe that he understands where he made mistakes and promises to do better and be able to articulate how he’s going to do even better than he’s done in...

    Jeff Weaver, a senior adviser to Bernie Sanders's 2020 presidential campaign, on Monday pushed back against President Trump's accusations that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is working to "rig" the primary contest against the Vermont senator. "It is not currently rigged. Last time it was rigged," Weaver, who as served Sanders's 2016 White House campaign manager, said on MSNBC as the Iowa caucuses got under way. Weaver added that Trump's comments are an attempt to paint the primary as a tool of the political establishment — and himself as the only candidate working outside of the machine. "We’re not going...

    Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Andrew Yang pushed false conspiracy theories on Twitter over the weekend tied to the canceled Des Moines Register poll, effectively commandeering a trending hashtag to convey the idea that their candidates are more successful than the public has been led to believe. The Des Moines Register poll, a closely watched indicator of the Iowa race, was canceled after at least one interviewer apparently omitted Pete Buttigieg’s name from the randomized list of candidates the surveyor read. The political website Axios reported that the reason for the error was that an interviewer increased the...
