Former Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang has joined the growing number of former rivals who have thrown their support behind Joe Biden for the party nomination.

Yang announced the end of his campaign last month after failing to win any delegates in New Hampshire, but the strength of his campaign surprised many in the Democratic Party.
