(NewsReady.com) – Businessman Andrew Yang, who dropped out of the Democrat presidential race on February 11, has called for at least one more of the remaining candidates to follow him out of the contest. It seems Yang wants to boost the chances of a moderate challenger to Bernie Sanders – but he knows it’s a lot to ask.
Yang issued his plea on CNN as the results of the Nevada caucuses showed Senator Sanders (D-VT) building up a commanding lead. He’s worried about a contested convention where no candidate has a majority going in and superdelegates could swing the contest.
The tough part is that Bernie – and every other candidate – will almost certainly be unable to get a majority of delegates necessary to win the nomination outright. This will release the superdelegates and will likely result in a contested convention.

Having ended his own campaign after a poor result at the New Hampshire primary, Yang now says it’s time for at least one more candidate to “be like, I’ve done the math. I’m not going to win.” He did acknowledge that every candidate wants to be the one to collect the non-Sanders vote and confront the radical senator at the convention.
