Rep. Eric Swalwell Announces He Is Running For President; 18th Democrat to enter race


California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) has announced that he is officially joining the 2020 presidential race.

The California Democrat made the announcement while taping an appearance for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Monday night.

The show tweeted out a video clip of Swalwell making the announcement after speaking on what he considers to be some of the problems in the current administration.

“I see a country in quicksand, unable to solve problems and threats from abroad, unable to make life better for people here at home,” Swalwell told Colbert.

“I’m ready to solve these problems. I’m running for president of the United States.”

“Boy, did it feel good to say that,” Swalwell added.

Swalwell followed the on-air announcement with a video proclaiming: “Let’s go big, be bold, and do good!”
