(CNN) Former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said Thursday that multiple presidential campaigns have reached out to him about potentially supporting their campaigns.
Yang’s comments come following a Wall Street Journal report on Thursday that Democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg’s campaign had “floated” the possibility of Yang being his vice president.
“What I can say is that multiple campaigns have reached out, and it’s flattering to be considered for a VP role or any role in someone’s campaign,” Yang told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on “Anderson Cooper 360.”
Yang dropped out of the race earlier this month, after paltry numbers in early contests made it clear that he would not advance.
On Saturday, he said 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.
