Yang failed to qualify for the debate after protesting for weeks that newer polls showing his rising support were not being commissioned in early primary states such as New Hampshire.

“If the DNC had only done their due diligence and commissioned polls in the early states, Andrew Yang would certainly be on the debate stage next week. We are not going to allow the DNC to dictate who they wish to see as the nominee and deny the will of the people,” his campaign manager said in a statement before the debate.

Yang appeared to take missing Tuesday’s contest in stride, quipping afterwards: “That’s the last debate I’ll miss.”

His campaign, meanwhile, echoed criticism of the debate-stage lineup from media commentators afterwards including CNN’s Van Jones, who said he “missed Andrew Yang” after the debate ended.
