It’s official: Senator Kamala Harris isn’t the only Californian running for president.
Representative Eric Swalwell, a 38-year-old from the East Bay, said he, too, was jumping into the race. His announcement, on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” made its way to Twitter late Monday afternoon before the show aired.
“I’m running for president of the United States,” he tells Mr. Colbert. “Boy, did it feel good to say that.”

This makes Mr. Swalwell the 18th candidate to join the 2020 Democratic primary and pushes the tally above the 17 candidates in the 2016 Republican primary.
So who is Mr. Swalwell?
He’s a fourth-term congressman who represents the Bay Area district where he grew up, though he was born in a small town in Iowa — a crucial state that he’s visited almost 20 times in recent years, according to The Mercury News.
Like Ms. Harris, he got his start in the Alameda County prosecutor’s office. Mr. Swalwell sat on various Dublin city commissions before serving on the City Council.
In 2012, he shocked political observers by unseating Pete Stark, a 40-year incumbent in a solidly Democratic district in the first election cycle under California’s “top two” primary system.
Over the last couple of years, Mr. Swalwell’s profile has grown within Congress, as a member of the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, and as a frequent critic of President Trump on cable news.
Why is he running for president?
Mr. Swalwell told the Bay Area News Group that he comes “from a generation that solves big problems in the private sector but has lost faith that government can do it when it comes to health care, education and reducing gun violence.” That generation is the millennial one.
But Mr. Swalwell is far from the only candidate with relative youth on his side. Mayor Pete Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., is 37, for instance, as is Mr. Swalwell’s friend and House colleague, Tulsi Gabbard.
Mr. Swalwell has tried to differentiate himself with an aggressive stance on gun control (he has called for a national ban on assault weapons) and he has emphasized his experience as a prosecutor.
As The San Francisco Chronicle noted, Mr. Swalwell has also said his relationship with his conservative family would help him attract some of the president’s supporters.
Does he have a chance?
Mr. Swalwell’s path is pretty slim. He’s entering the race late, and beyond the cable news circuit, he’s not particularly well known. But Mr. Swalwell has said he will not run for Congress again while running for president, so he could be setting himself up for another try down the line.

In Texas, families who can trace their Mexican roots back for generations have a saying: “We didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us.”
It refers to the fact that huge portions of the American West were once part of Mexico and that over the course of various wars and land grabs by the U.S., our southern border has shifted.
That’s an idea the California-raised photographer Tomas van Houtryve hoped to explore when he set out to make images of California, New Mexico, Nevada and Texas closer to how they were in the middle of the 19th century: as part of Mexico.
So Mr. van Houtryve bought a 19th-century camera and traced the border according to a North American map from 1839, he told my colleague, Simon Romero. The idea was to challenge what he described as a “puffed-up” mythology surrounding American expansion.
The results are arresting.
