Eric Swalwell has represented the eastern San Francisco Bay Area since 2012 after his campaign for generational change scored an upset victory against a four-decade incumbent.
Swalwell rose to national prominence during the 2020 Democratic Primaries, running a campaign focused on stricter gun safety laws and other mainstream liberal priorities.
He serves on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the House Judiciary Committee and the House Committee on Homeland Security. Swalwell also serves in Democratic leadership as the co-chair of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.
Rep Swalwell is a strong J Street ally.
He was an early cosponsor of HR. 326, reaffirming congressional commitment to the two-state solution and opposing settlement expansion and annexation. Swalwell has been a consistent supporter of a diplomatic agreement with Iran as a means of verifiably ending their nuclear weapons program while avoiding direct military conflict.
