Polls are closed in New Hampshire as Democratic presidential hopefuls compete for the support of the Granite State. Just after the polls closed, entrepreneur Andrew Yang announced he is suspending his bid for the White House.

Yang's campaign thrived on his relatable, fun persona; his demeanor is vastly more appealing than that of his peers, most of whom are career politicians who thrive on political pandering. At the center of his campaign was Yang's idea to cut a 1,000 dollar monthly check to every American, which gained traction nationwide. 

Yang had no real path to the nomination, but his positive presence in the race will surely be missed.
