Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang greets supporters in who are holding signs in front of a polling station on February 11, 2020 in Keene, New Hampshire.

Although businessman Andrew Yang‘s campaign has come to an end, his supporters are already looking to the future. Many appear to be looking to focus their efforts on promoting his signature campaign proposal — a universal basic income (UBI) for every American — and helping those with similar beliefs get into Congress.

“We could effectively get our first major UBI candidate in 2020 or 2022 as far as Congress goes.

Santens expressed his belief in the benefit of having people like Ocasio-Cortez in politics.
