Yang Gang Gone! More Candidates Drop Out as 2020 Race Hits Its Stride

The young tech entrepreneur left the door open for future campaigns, however.

As with any election in our modern, mad world, the 2020 contest will be the most important of our lives.  Or whatever they’re saying.

This sort of culmination complex has turned us into raving lunatics when it comes to politics, and our writhing, angry masses force otherwise cogent politicians into bizarre corners.  From there, they build a fanbase around some singular idea or policy concept.

“We’ll be back,” Yang tweeted after the New Hampshire primary.

Yang could very well run again, given his age and the fervor he created among the “Yang Gang”, as his supporters referred to themselves.

The New Hampshire Primary ended with a predictable win for Bernie Sanders, who hails from the neighboring state of Vermont, and an abysmal continuance of Joe Biden swift downward spiral.

Also dropping out of the 2020 election was former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, who had largely been a non-factor in the race after joining the fray late and low on support.
