New criteria announced for New Hampshire debate

  New criteria announced for New Hampshire debate The Democratic National Committee on Friday announced two pathways to qualifying for the next presidential primary debate in New Hampshire on Feb. 7, but they are unlikely to winnow the field of candidates any further. © Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Democratic presidential candidates participate in the PBS NewsHour and POLITICO hosted primary debate in December. Candidates can qualify through one of two ways: hitting roughly the same polling and donor marks set for the January debate, or winning at least one pledged delegate to the Democratic National Convention out of the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3.

Andrew Yang , 45. Ended his bid for the presidency in January, after failing to break into the upper tier of a crowded primary field. His exit is the latest departure of a candidate of color from a field that began as the most racially diverse ever in a Democratic primary.

"Interesting," tweeted Fox News contributor Byron York. "@pdoocy reports on Fox that there is only one Democrat (Andrew Yang) in Iowa now, 11 days out from caucuses."

Yang's campaign has garnered endorsements from such high-profile celebrities as Dave Chappelle, Nicolas Cage and former Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson.

One of the cornerstones of Yang's political policies has been his plan to provide a Universal Basic Income, which Yang refers to as the Freedom Dividend. Under the Freedom Dividend plan, Americans over the age of 18 would receive $1,000 per month regardless of their employment status.

"A Universal Basic Income at this level would permanently grow the economy by 12.56 to 13.10 percent—or about $2.5 trillion by 2025—and it would increase the labor force by 4.5 to 4.7 million people," says Yang's campaign website.

Newsweek reached out to Yang's campaign for comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.
