Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) is mounting a run for the White House, according to a Politico report, making him one of the first Democrats to challenge President Trump in 2020.
An aide to Swalwell declined to confirm the Politico report, but noted that the three-term congressman has raised the prospect of a presidential bid in interviews and television appearances for months.

Swallowell can run, but he can’t get elected.
Let’s see how quickly the Democrat field of Presidential candidates reaches 20...
If your ever listened to this guy you would conclude that he is an idiot. He has been an understudy to the Minority leader on the House Intelligence committee who is also an idiot.
He’s the Vanilla Ice of the libturd party...
By declaring early, he can set up a campaign fund and his local supports can start funding it. That’s all it is.
Your typical smug, arrogant leftist that tells lots of lies.
Doesn’t he know that voters won’t support a House member for President: haven’t since maybe 1844?
Good for him...
He grew up in Iowa.
Perhaps Occasional Cortex is dippy enough to eventually put her name out there by 2020.
The O/U will soon be 50.
So little Skippy wants to be president. Who knew? [s]
I think this is some of the best news we’ve heard all week. He’s an absolute nightmare, but if he’s willing to go up against hillary, then have at it. He’s an insane Leftist, anyway. He’ll have to go so far Left to be heard, it’ll comical. And, he’ll drag everyone else with him. hillary will be sounding like Pat Buchanan by the time they get to the debates.
Swalwell, Harris, Warren, Clinton, Newsome, O’Rourke, Ocasio-Cortez, Abrams, Gillum...for starters. What an All Star lineup.
Unfortunately she is to young to be Constitutionally eligible for POTUS.
YOU know that, and I know that, but does SHE know that?
Isn’t this guy related by marriage to George Soros?
The last person whose highest office was Congressman to be elected President was James A. Garfield in 1880 (although he was senator-elect when elected). Of course he had already been a college president and a major general in the Civil War, among other things...obviously less qualified than what’s-his-name.
