Washington, D.C., July 16, 2020 - Today, the Brady Campaign endorsed Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15) in his campaign for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2020.
Brady Campaign President Kris Brown shared:
"Rep. Eric Swalwell understands the role that dedicated public servants can play to address gun violence and that doing so requires all Americans to come together and fearlessly advocate for sensible gun laws. Rep. Swalwell was a crucial supporter of the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 and the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019, helping to usher these important bills through the House Judiciary Committee. He also introduced H.R 1287, the No Guns for Abusers Act, which requires that all domestic abusers, or those subject to a domestic violence protective order, surrender their guns to local authorities. Rep. Swalwell continues to demonstrate his commitment to fighting gun violence in all its forms, including the dangerous trend of gun extremism and the need to ban weapons of war in our communities. He is unafraid to take action. Brady is proud to endorse Rep. Eric Swalwell for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives."
Rep. Eric Swalwell shared:
"I made ending gun violence the centerpiece issue of my brief presidential campaign because I know we must act decisively now to save American lives. I'm honored to have Brady's endorsement for re-election, and I'm eager to keep working together to pass common sense legislation that makes our communities safer."
Rep. Eric Swalwell has long been a dedicated public servant: first as a prosecutor, and now as a member of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force. We look forward to working with him to stop the American gun violence epidemic, and are proud to endorse Rep. Eric Swalwell for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.
Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
