The group of more than 36 possible Democratic presidential hopefuls includes familiar faces — like former presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
“When you look at the [primary] field, you’ve got veterans who have been around for a long time, but the people in our country are looking at what is a new vision for America,” Swalwell told Fox News.
A number of other House Democrats have also shown interest in a 2020 presidential campaign — including Reps. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii; Joe Kennedy, D-Mass.
Former Obama officials, like Vice President Joe Biden, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former Secretary of State John Kerry, and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro have all floated possible runs.
“I think a crowded field for us is a good thing,” Swalwell told Fox News.
