According to a report by the Atlantic, Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell (California) is preparing to join the hordes of Dems already running or planning to run for president.
The focus of his campaign is, according to the report, going to be taking guns and attacking the NRA.
SCOOP – @ericswalwell is moving forward with his presidential announcement next week with a town hall in Parkland and a scheduled announcement on Colbert.
He’s going to focus his campaign on gun control: https://t.co/6lk1Nk3lSx

“Next week, Eric Swalwell is joining the pack. The California congressman and frequent cable-news guest on all things related to President Donald Trump and Russia will announce his presidential plans in an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. But he won’t be running on Russia, or on the continuing fallout from the Mueller report and the Barr letter. Swalwell will center his campaign on gun control.”
Because Democrats always have success when they make gun control a main general election issue.

NARRATOR: He's not going to win, but he risks moving the Democrats into a place where they lose general election votes. https://t.co/veAH50Q2Ec

Using a Parkland survivor to announce a campaign primarily based on taking people’s guns and trumpeting the evils of the NRA.
What could go wrong?
Congressman from California is going to announce in Florida?
So he can use Parkland as a prop?

As Hillary Clinton did in 2016, Swalwell’s going to need to stay silent and off camera to increase his potential of winning.
Prediction…@RepSwalwell will not do well in any Presidential bid.
He is a provable liar and buffoon. He shouldn’t even have the office he has currently… https://t.co/QD7d6bIKF5
