Eric Swalwell Is First Democrat To Drop Out Of 2020 Race


Rep. Eric Swalwell becomes the first candidate to drop out of the 2020 presidential primary race after failing to gain traction in the crowded Democratic primary. Swalwell canceled a 4th of July event last week, prompting questions over his candidacy.

"We have to be honest about our own candidacy's viability," Swalwell told reporters at a press conference Monday. "Today ends our presidential campaign, but it is the beginning of an opportunity in Congress with a new perspective shaped by the lives that have touched me and my campaign over the past few months."
