“After experiencing abdominal pain this morning, Andrew Yang visited an emergency room where he was diagnosed with what appears to be a kidney stone,” the Democratic candidate’s campaign announced.
The campaign said that Yang’s public evens for Friday have been canceled but that the candidate “looks forward to getting back out on the trail in the days ahead.”
The 46-year old New York City entrepreneur grabbed national attending during the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries, as the one-time longest of long shots for the nomination saw his campaign briefly soar due, in part, to his push for each adult American to receive $1,000 a month as a part of a universal basic income.
Yang and his family were at Yankee Stadium on Thursday for opening day of the 2021 Major League Baseball season.
Yang was scheduled on Friday to unveil his Broadway and live performance revival plan.
