Congressman Eric Swalwell Returns to Dublin High School as Candidate for President with Hometown Rally

April 15, 2019

DUBLIN, CA–Congressman Eric Swalwell, Dublin High School Class of ’99, returned to his alma mater yesterday for a his first Candidate for President Rally in front of an enthusiastic hometown audience. The rally had all the trappings we’ll be seeing a lot more of in the coming year leading up to the Primaries – music, speeches and signs, signs and more signs.

In the case of Swalwell, he built his stump speech around his middle class roots which ultimately landed him in Dublin after multiple moves and school changes in search for an affordable home. He laid out his agenda starting with gun control – he held his first Candidate for President Town Hall at Parkland – and covered issues you’d expect of a Democratic candidate including the cost of education, economic opportunity for the middle class, universal healthcare coverage and restoring trust in Washington. Swalwell also pledged to have a Lincoln-esque cabinet of rivals if elected, by including Republicans in his cabinet. Swalwell joked that he appears on Fox News regularly so that his parents, both Republicans, have a chance to see him on TV.

The rally, attended by hundreds of supporters, also included speeches by Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley (Swalwell worked as an Assistant DA before heading into politics, starting as a City of Dublin Councilmember). Dublin native and The Voice semi-finalist Noah Mac performed and Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego introduced Swalwell.
