His campaign's theme is "Let's go big, be bold and do good," which can be seen in his promo video:

Not everyone was excited about the what they saw. In fact, Swalwell has made a name for himself as anti-gunner and, like practically every other 2020 Democrat, plans to run on the gun control issue.
While he wants to be known as a strong supporter of "gun safety," his claim to fame is wanting to nuke gun owners.

And then there are those who can't even take his candidacy seriously.
Voters “This field of candidates couldn’t get any dumber!”— Derek Hunter (@derekahunter) April 8, 2019
Swalwell, “Hold my Zima.”
He should’ve gone with “Submit, we have nukes.” https://t.co/6oav6yHHso

When your candidacy is a joke, what better place to announce it than on a comedy show? Eric Swalwell— Mark Dice (@MarkDice) April 8, 2019
Eric Swalwell has 32,000 Facebook followers. Looks like there's some huge interest in his campaign. hahahahahaha! #Loser2020— Mark Dice (@MarkDice) April 9, 2019
Congrats to Swalwell and his family, no doubt the only 4 people even mildly excited by this https://t.co/OkzWuD56JA— Secular Talk (@KyleKulinski) April 8, 2019
Bet he's second guessing wanting to nuke gun owners. But hey, the clown car is turning into a clown parade. And it's great news for President Trump.
