Democrat says he’ll take Trump-like path to presidency

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Democratic presidential candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang speaks at a campaign event, today, in Las Vegas.

LAS VEGAS >> Democrat Andrew Yang understands he’s unknown to much of America but says he’ll ride what seems like an improbable path to the White House just like President Donald Trump.

Yang, an entrepreneur who has never held political office, is generating buzz with his signature proposal for universal basic income and is banking on high-profile appearance on the Democratic debate stage this year for his message to catch on.

The 44-year-old made his first visit today to the early voting state of Nevada, drawing at least 300 people to his evening rally waving signs that read “Math” and “Yang Gang” as the candidate predicted his rise through a crowded field.

Yang says like Trump, he’ll break away by taking on issues no other candidate will talk about.
