Eric Swalwell, a four-term congressman from California's Bay Area, ended his presidential run exactly three months after it started.
"Today ends our presidential campaign, but it is the beginning of an opportunity in Congress, with a new perspective shaped by the lives that have touched mine and our campaign throughout these last three months, to bring that promise of America to all Americans," Swalwell said at his campaign headquarters in California.
The Democrat raised his profile in recent years by becoming a staple on cable television, especially to talk about investigations into the Trump administration. He made combating gun violence the top focus of his campaign.
