During his campaign, Swalwell struggled to gain traction and his poll numbers have peaked at 1%, East Bay Citizen reported. He is the first major Democratic candidate to drop out of the race. “Today ends our presidential campaign, but it is the beginning of an opportunity in Congress

His 1% at one time was a huge rounding error. He likely was below 0% because people could easily see what a fool he is. Hopefully he loses his house seat in the Trump 2020 landslide victory.

He had student loans to pay off and basically broke. This was a money grab. When politicians make the laws for themselves there are usually some BIG loopholes.

Tucker Carlson had Swalwell on his show a few times. He was a smarmy creep. Tucker is a better man than I. I would have been very tempted to strangle him. In the first debate, Swalwell actually said "I will be bold without the bold.” On TV. I think that is what finally sank him. Every election he runs in from now on, his opponents will lead with that clip. Good riddance to bad garbage. The bugger just announced he's going to run to be re-elected to his current seat in Congress, though. Hope he loses.

A federal judge in New York refused the Justice Department's effort to change its legal team in a fight over President Trump's push to add a question about citizenship status onto the 2020 census because they did not provide a sufficient explanation."Defendants provide no reasons, let alone 'satisfactory reasons,' for the substitution of counsel," wrote U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman, who is presiding over one of three lawsuits that aim to keep to the citizenship question off the census. Furman said any future motions to withdraw would need to be supported by a signed and sworn affidavit.

Late Monday night, NBC News published an “exclusive” revealing that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s great-great-grandfathers owned 14 slaves. The article ties the so-called revelation to McConnell’s opposition to reparations for the descendants of slaves.(Photo) NBC spent a great amount of time digging through century-old census records to trace McConnell’s history and find the slave owners.“The two great-great-grandfathers, James McConnell and Richard Daley, owned a total of at least 14 slaves in Limestone County, Alabama — all but two of them female, according to the county ‘Slave Schedules’ in the 1850 and 1860 censuses,” NBC reported.

Marcus listed reasons many Republicans had for voting for Trump: blocking Hillary Clinton, seeking balanced Supreme Court appointees, and curbing government regulation. “As a GOP donor who stood steadfastly behind Jeb Bush — and who has contributed to candidates for a generation — I urge all Republicans to stand up and be counted in support for Donald Trump,” he wrote.

In a video posted by the left-wing Jewish group IfNotNow on Twitter, two of its activists approached Warren for a picture—she poses for photos with anyone who wants them after campaign events—and introduced themselves as American Jews with a proposition for her.
