Andrew Yang on NHPR.
Watch the full interview here.
Andrew Yang sits down with Stephen Dubner for an extended podcast discussing why he is running for president.
Watch Andrew Yang’s headline speech at the 2018 Progress Iowa Holiday Party that received a standing ovation from 400+ activists.
When the campaign launched in February, the New York Times called Andrew a “longer than longshot” candidate.
Since then we’ve had some real wins. Nearly every major news outlet has profiled Andrew. Donors and supporters from all over the country – South Carolina, North Dakota, Minnesota, and just about every other state – have stepped forward and said, “This is our campaign.”
Still, even our biggest supporters ask us: “Does Andrew really have a shot?”
We understand their disbelief. Andrew’s platform is bold, smart, and entirely new. This kind of political change never comes easy—and many are so jaded by American politics that it’s hard to believe meaningful progress is possible.
Here at HQ, we know we’re in for the fight of our lives. Andrew is going up against establishment politicians with multi-million dollar warchests. We can’t outraise the competition.
Our legitimacy is not going to come from fancy endorsements or press hits. It’s going to come from you.
So today, we’re asking you to give us one dollar.
It’s not about the money—it’s about what it demonstrates. It’s about showing the establishment that Andrew’s “radical” solutions aren’t so radical, and that thousands of voters across the country believe his ideas belong on the debate stage.
We need 100,000 people to donate just $1 each to Yang2020 by the end of the year. If we pull this off, we’ll have the attention we need to contend in the primaries and change America’s political dialogue. Most importantly, Andrew’s vision won’t seem like such a longshot.
You can help us make this real.
