California Rep. Eric Swalwell on Monday dropped out of the race for his party’s presidential nomination, becoming the first of what is expected to be many Democrats to give up their presidential aspirations as the crowded field winnows down.

Swalwell, who in recent polls failed to garner even one percent among Democratic primary and caucus voters, said he was abandoning his presidential run in favor of focusing on getting reelected to House of Representatives.

“Being honest with ourselves, we had to look at how much money we were raising and where we were in the polls,” Swalwell said during a press conference at a union hall in Dublin, Calif. “We have to be honest about our candidacy.”

Dems weren’t too concerned about THIS guy having his finger on the nuclear button huh?

There should be a pool of who will drop out next. I'm thinking Tim Ryan might be it - another white guy polling at 1% who didn't get much traction in the debate, most memorable for giving Tulsi Gabbard a minor recreation of the Ron Paul moment.

Looks like he didn't swallow it too well.
This is what the kid wearing a helmet at school would say while the group around him would side eye each other, slightly empathetic, but fully entertained.

thank you, there is no more fitting a gif
