Live updates: Democratic candidates debate in Miami – CNNPolitics

Andrew Mendieta and Robb Maddox didn’t know each other before today.

The two men met near the site of tonight’s debate in Florida while rallying and showing their support for 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang.

“He’s just a very solutions-oriented candidate,” Maddox said.

Donning Yang campaign gear, Maddox, 24, of Athens, Georgia, and Mendieta, 39, of West Palm Beach stood in 90-degree Miami sun alongside other candidates’ supporters.

Mendieta was never politically active, but he said Yang’s data-driven policies changed things for him. Mendieta donated to Yang’s campaign for the first time ever.
