No. There are 500,000+ elected positions in the United States. Most of those races are uncontested, even though they have the most impact on the everyday lives of Americans. Mayors, council members, school boards. While we won’t shy away from big national races, our focus is on winning seats like these to change the course of our country. This is not an effort to run a presidential candidate in 2024, and no one on the Forward team is currently planning to run for president. This is an effort to build a viable, credible, and durable national political party.

"This is about so much more than the presidential race. While I don't plan to be a candidate in 2024, I do plan to recruit new leaders at all levels to move the country Forward." — Andrew Yang
