Eric Swalwell, a Democrat from the US Congress, announced his withdrawal from the presidential race in 2020 to become the first candidate to withdraw from the race.
Swalwell’s withdrawal came in a statement to members of his California campaign tonight to end his short attempt to run for the Democratic presidential race, which did not produce tangible results.
In his statement, Swalwell said that he is ending his presidential campaign, but he is starting his efforts in Congress with a new perspective for the lives and needs of his citizens during his presidential campaign over the past three months and realizing that America is for all Americans.
Eric Michael Swalwell has held his congressional seat as California vice president since 2013. He has been running for president since April this year, vowing to tackle the problem of firearms violence in the United States, but he has not been able to continue running amid a crowd of more then twenty candidates.
