At a recent campaign rally, supporters of Andrew Yang chanted the word "PowerPoint." This is because Yang promised to deliver the State of the Union addresses, using the software.

As a former tech executive and entrepreneur, Yang hopes to capitalize on his nerd cred during the Democratic presidential race.

He's also gained enough support to qualify for the first presidential debate. We talk with Yang about the race to 2020.
