New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, the former long-shot presidential candidate, was hospitalized Friday after experiencing abdominal pain and has cancelled upcoming events scheduled for later in the day.
“After experiencing abdominal pain this morning, [Andrew Yang] visited an ER where he was diagnosed with what appears to be kidney stone,” said co-campaign manager Chris Coffey in a Twitter statement. “He remains at the hospital with Evelyn. His events for the day are cancelled, but he looks forward to getting back out on the trail soon.”

Yang, the highest-polling Democratic candidate by recent survey data, is running to replace the term-limited Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has been running the city since 2013. According to The New York Times, however, a recent poll also showed that half of likely Democratic voters in the city don’t know who they will vote for during the June primary.
Before he was hospitalized, Yang was expected to speak on his plan for the future of broadway and live performances, both of which suffered greatly during the pandemic, reports Politico. Yang had also been scheduled to attend a show with his wife, Evelyn.
