Businessman Andrew Yang announces withdrawal from Democratic presidential race

Andrew Yang, an entrepreneur whose unlikely White House bid evolved into a serious campaign, pulled out of the Democratic presidential race on Tuesday after New Hampshire delivered him a second straight poor showing.

Yang, 45, who ran for president despite having no political background, surprised many observers by qualifying for debates and remaining in the contest longer than some veteran politicians.
