The Daily Beast reports:
The 2020 Democratic field is starting to winnow. Three months since he entered the historically large primary ring, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) announced Monday that he will bring his long-shot campaign to an end.
Swalwell, the 38-year-old member of the House Intelligence Committee, focused his presidential bid on confronting gun violence but failed to gain any traction. He languished at the bottom of the pack in polling and—prior to dropping out—ran the risk of missing out on qualifying for the next debate.
