Here’s the scoop, via Fox News:

California Rep. Eric Swalwell on Monday dropped out of the race for his party’s presidential nomination, becoming the first of what is expected to be many Democrats to give up their presidential aspirations as the crowded field winnows down.

Swalwell, who in recent polls failed to garner even one percent among Democratic primary and caucus voters, said he was abandoning his presidential run in favor of focusing on getting reelected to House of Representatives.

“Being honest with ourselves, we had to look at how much money we were raising and where we were in the polls,” Swalwell said during a news conference at a union hall in Dublin, Calif. “We have to be honest about our candidacy.”

Continued:

He added: “Today ends our presidential campaign, but it is the beginning of a new opportunity in Congress.”

Swalwell did not endorse any of his former primary rivals, saying only that he is impressed with the experience of the field.

“If Megan Rapinoe gets in the race, I’ll probably endorse her,” Swalwell said jokingly, in reference to the U.S. Women’s National Team soccer star.

Imagine if Swalwell was a Republican.

Without question, he’d be blasted by the mainstream media for this highly ignorant tweet that conflates all Hispanics with illegal aliens.

But since Eric is an anti-gun, far-left 2020 presidential candidate, he’ll get a pass.

LOOK:

If you’re Hispanic, there’s nothing @realDonaldTrump wont do to break up your family, cage your children, or erase your existence with a weaponized census. And there’s nothing we won’t do in the streets, courts, and at the ballot box to stop him. #FamiliesBelongTogether

Reactions:

Urgh, this is one of the worst. I know plenty of Hispanic families living here in peace. No separation. This is just misleading. Fear mongering. Awful tactic

You suffer from malady common among Democrats. You constantly misspell “illegal alien” as “Hispanic”

This is such garbage bs. Enforcing removal orders, some from the Obama admin, is not racist.

“Weaponized Census”😭😭😭😭

Asking if people are American Citizens is common sense except to the insane Liberal Democrats!

URGENT POLL: Does Trump have your vote in 2020?

From Breitbart:

During a June 4, 2019, appearance on The View Democrat presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell reiterated his pledge to take AR-15s and similar rifles away from law-abiding citizens.

ABC News quoted Swalwell saying, “Ban and buy back every single assault weapon in America. I’m the only candidate calling for that.”

Swalwell has been making this push for over a year, and it has morphed into the central component of his current campaign. His ban has gone through many revisions along the way, but one thing has stayed constant–commonly-owned semiautomatic rifles will be banned and taken from law-abiding citizens. Those who do not comply will face punishment that falls somewhere between jail time and being nuked.
