Andrew Yang, formerly a 2020 presidential hopeful and 2021 candidate for mayor of New York City, is expected to abandon his affiliation with the Democratic Party and start a third party this fall.

The launch will occur in tandem with the release of Yang’s latest book, “Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy” on October 5th, two people familiar with the development told Politico.

“Forward” is expected to be a condemnation of establishment elitism and America’s “era of institutional failure” wrought by “politicians whose incentives have become divorced from the people they supposedly serve.”

A few prominent figures have offered comments on the book, including businessman Mark Cuban, who called it “vitally important.”
