Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) said on Monday that after the midterm elections he will consider running for president in 2020.
"Let's talk about where you've been standing a lot, congressman, and that is in Iowa – 10 times over the last year and a half. Now I like Iowa … People running for president also like Iowa," CNN anchor Poppy Harlow said.
"Are you going to run for president?" Harlow asked.
"I'm going to do all I can do first to win my way back to Congress. I'm helping a lot of colleagues. Particularly, there's three seats in Iowa where we have two of our candidates under the age of 40. Then after the midterms, I'm going to consider it," Swalwell said. "Right now, I'm helping candidates who are stepping up to protect our health care, paychecks and protect the democracy. I'm inspired by so many new candidates who are bursts of new energy, ideas and leadership."
