Add Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., to what is expected to be a crowded field lining up to run against President Donald Trump in 2020, according to Politico.
"He's definitely running," a source told Politico, because Rep. Swalwell has not officially announced his intentions to campaign for president.
Rep. Swalwell, 37, will reportedly be the first potential candidate to head to Iowa. He grew up in Iowa, the famed location of the Iowa Caucuses will kick off the primary season across the United States every four years.
The 2020 Democratic primary field is expected to include higher-profile candidates like Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.; Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; Cory Booker, D-N.J.; and Kamala Harris, D-Calif.
New Hampshire also is an early primary stop, and that state might be amenable to Swalwell's candidacy amid the more popular senators.
"People were extremely impressed by him and New Hampshire people are hard to impress," Manchester, New Hampshire, Democratic Party Chairman Gene Martin told Politico.
Martin's organization hosted Swalwell during its "Countdown to Victory Dinner" last week.
"People walked away from that dinner with just a 'wow affect,' and he worked the room like someone who was running for president," Martin added.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez told The Christian Science Monitor breakfast Thursday his organization will have the primary debate schedule ironed out before Christmas, vowing to hold more debates for this Democratic primary than the last.
