Eric Swalwell Drops Out of the 2020 Presidential Race

Democratic U.S. Rep. Swalwell ends long-shot White House bid

Swalwell's exit from the 2020 race will make him the first candidate to drop out since the campaign began in earnest.

"But it is the beginning of an opportunity in Congress with a new perspective shaped by the lives that touched mine and our campaign's in the last three months to bring that promise to all Americans". "We have to be honest about our own candidacy's viability".

U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) ended his long-shot bid for the White House Monday after failing to gain momentum since jumping into the race in April.

"Good work, Swalwell", the Twitter account@Team_Mitch, managed by the staff of McConnell, wroteMonday.

Regarding his reelection to the House, Swalwell said that his district has struggled with the same national issues he had highlighted during his campaign. As recently as July 6, 2019, Swalwell tweeted video where he assured CNN viewers there was momentum for gun control and pledged that he would "ride that momentum" if elected. "If Republicans can just frame the election as, 'Democrats want to go back to the third term of Obama, ' I don't think we can win".

Swalwell's departure still leaves a Democratic field of 23 candidates including front runners former Vice President Joe Biden, California Senator Kamala Harris, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. "We're here to beat the NRA". "I'm not even accepting the premise that Mitch McConnell is going to be there".

Swalwell was one of the more aggressive candidates on the Democratic debate stage last month, challenging former Vice President Joe Biden, 76, to "pass the torch" to a younger generation. The high point came for Swalwell when he made the cut for the first Democratic debate last month but apparently, it's been all downhill from there.

With the benchmark requirements for candidates to appear in the July 30-31 debates significantly increased, the likelihood of Swalwell qualifying was already low.

"We don't have to live this way anymore and that we love our children more than we love our guns". But if he does, Swalwell won't be around to take the handoff. "Joe Biden was right when he said when it was time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans 32 years ago". In other words, things would remain pretty much the same as they are now and Swalwell leaving the race will have no effect on anything. The liberal activist had traveled to Iowa in January to announce he was not running. Gun owners were grateful to have their imaginary guns returned to them, and said as a result they would stop imagining shooting Eric Swalwell and anyone else who imagines taking their guns.
