Eric Swalwell: The 7 Issues Guide

Today I bring you the 14th installment of TokyoSand’s excellent series, The 7 Issues Guide, helping us get to know a bit about the platforms of the democratic candidates running for the office of president next year. Eric Swalwell is on deck today. I know next to nothing about Mr. Swalwell, other than that he is currently serving his 4th term in the U.S. House of Representatives. He seems to have the right ideas, but with 23 candidates currently in the running, I don’t see anything that stands out and says, “Pick me!” Nonetheless, I believe all the candidates should be given fair consideration, for you never know where you will find a diamond in the rough. Thank you, TokyoSand, and your diligent volunteers, for helping us get to know Mr. Swalwell!

The Democrats have a big field of candidates running for President in 2020. Each of them brings their own unique strengths to the table in a bid to take our country in a very different direction than the one we’re on today.

But as we well know from 2016, the media (and especially social media) gets fixated on non-substantial issues that take up all the oxygen. Plus, they don’t give the candidates the same treatment or the same amount of airtime.

In order to help voters get to know the Democratic candidates, I’ve gathered quotes and information about what the candidates have said or done in regards to the 7 issues that midterm voters identified as the most important. I hope that these guides serve as a helpful starting point for you as you look into which candidates (or how many candidates!) you are interested in…

  1. The good thing about having lots of candidates is there is more chance of having a hidden gem, so look closely at everyone. The bad thing is the hiddem gem might never be found, getting lost in the pack, so look carefully.

  2. Swalwell is a frequent contributor on the Rachel Maddow Show and The Last Word so I’ve become fairly familiar with who he is. But overall, he (like several others in the running) is an “unknown.”

    He pretty much supports most, if not all, Democratic concerns — but then so do several others. I do like him, but I must admit his chances are pretty slim considering the number of candidates. Many with much more name recognition.

    The weeding will no doubt begin within the next few months.
