Congressman Eric Swalwell, who was headed for re-election in the 15th Congressional District, said, "I'm humbled and honored by the 15th District's faith in returning me to Congress for a fourth term. As the new chairman of the CIA Subcommittee of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and as a member of the Judiciary Committee, I'll do my part to make sure this new Congress conducts fair, complete oversight while working to deliver the protections Americans deserve. And over the next few months, I'll give careful consideration to how best to serve our nation in the future."

He was asked to comment on the national election results with the Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives.

Swalwell stated, “All across the nation, Americans have made the choice to protect their healthcare, their paychecks, and their democracy. They have made the choice to put a check on this wrecking-ball president and his dangerous policies and divisive rhetoric. They have made the choice to hold this Administration accountable for its actions and ensure nobody is above the law. They have made the choice to build a better Congress that can move our country forward.”
