NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- California Democratic congressman Eric Swalwell has jumped in the 2020 presidential race.

“I see a country in quicksand, unable to solve problems and threats from abroad, unable to make life better for people here at home,” Swalwell told Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show."

Then, the big announcement: “I’m ready to solve these problems, I’m running for president of the United States.”

“It's official. Boy, did it feel good to say that,” Swalwell added.
