Early Life and Education[edit]

Herzog was born in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.[2][self-published source] He is the son of Israeli immigrants and has two sisters.[3]

He attended Ramaz School, which is a coeducational Jewish Modern Orthodox Day School and Hunter College High School.[4] He attended Harvard University where he graduated first in his class. [5] Later, he attended New York University and completed his MBA. Herzog took an indefinite leave from Harvard Law School to move to Iowa to serve as Andrew Yang's Iowa Campaign Coordinator.

Political career[edit]

Andrew Yang's 2020 Presidential Campaign[edit]

Herzog took an indefinite leave from Harvard Law School to serve as the Iowa Campaign Coordinator for Andrew Yang. Herzog found Yang's message to be appealing because he was the "only voice in our political process" speaking about the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Herzog was also attracted to Yang's proposal of the Freedom Dividend, a universal basic income, of $1,000 a month for every American and wanted to help him qualify for the Democratic debates.[6][7]

2020 House Race[edit]

In August 2020, Herzog announced that he would be leaving Yang's Presidential campaign and run for US Congress in New York's 10th Congressional District. One of the reasons that Herzog ran for Congress is that he knew Andrew Yang would need allies in Congress to pass the Freedom Dividend. Herzog's campaign is centered around universal basic income, Medicare For All and democracy vouchers to combat big money in politics.[8][9][10][11][12][13][14]

Personal life[edit]

Herzog is Jewish. He is also openly gay.[15]
