We have our first drop out of the upcoming 2020 Presidential race for the Democrats as California Representative Eric Swalwell announced yesterday that he is dropping out of the 2020 race for president.
"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 mine and our campaign throughout these last three months, to bring that promise of America to all Americans," Swalwell said.
He continued: "I'm fired up to do that work that I've already been doing in the Congress."
Swalwell also said that he was "running to win and make a difference," and didn't have an honest shot at victory in a field of over 20 candidates.
Swalwell's exit from the 2020 race makes him the first candidate to drop out since the campaign began.
