He already has my vote.
Eric Swalwell needs to go. He has just become a Trump-bashing hack of the left. He doesn't represent us in this District, but is on some sort of crusade of the crazy Hillary type.

@Greg, I don’t believe Swalwell is your Representative for Diablo. You may want to double check this.

We will continue to support Swalwell and are happy to do so. This year has been a mess and to have some “medical marketing” guy, with no experience in local government (even being on the PTA can give one a taste), will do nothing for our district, let alone D.C.

All Swalwell talk is guns, guns and more guns and if he is bored go on tv to trash president. What did he achieve to stop vegas?
Will vote any body except Swalwell.

Congress overall have a lower approval rating than a garden snail. They do not represent the people, but I hope he keeps bashing this lame duck president until he explode. Eric at lease represent most of my point of view. However, I am not risking my vote on a marketing/salesman without any government experience.

I am an Independent and welcome opportunity to vote for St. John, a non-partisan, to help break the gridlock in Washington. I encourage all voters who are moderates to not vote for Swallwell, who seems to be a party first politician, and instead vote for a truly independent person who will put his constituents, not Nancy Pelosi or Donald Trump, first. We need more independents to get our country back to working together, which will never happen with Swallwell and Trump in a fight on partisan grounds. Santa Clara University also has an excellent MBA program, so this truly independent guy must be very bright. Good luck to him!

We need to get rid of professional politicians and elect someone who will represent the local people, not a political party.

He has my vote.

Mr. St. John has my vote. Swalwell is a far left lapdog of Pelosi & Feinstein that does not represent me in any way.

I think the current (insert name here) Ca office holder is great!


The DNC, the teachers union, all public employee unions, the liberal media and the swamp.
