Washington (CNN) Entrepreneur Andrew Yang said Saturday that the still-wide Democratic presidential field needs to unite, and joked that someone ought to “pull an Andrew Yang” and drop out of the race.
“The rest of the field needs to consolidate, ideally,” Yang said on CNN.
“And each candidate wants to be the last person standing to absorb the non-Bernie energy,” meaning front-runner Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.
“Someone needs to pull an Andrew Yang,” Yang said with a laugh, referencing when he ended his own presidential campaign just last week.
His comments come after CNN projected Sanders would win the Nevada caucuses .
