Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, who ended his campaign last week, is joining CNN as a political commentator, the news network announced on Wednesday.

Yang is a businessman who was able to rally a small coalition of Democrats, libertarians, and some Republicans — who self-identified as the "Yang Gang" — to back his bid for president. One of his more well-known platforms was what he called a Freedom Dividend, which was a plan for the federal government to give every adult in the U.S. a universal basic income of $1,000 a month.
