A Democratic presidential candidate says he looks forward to a chance to talk with residents in one of his favorite cities. California Congressman Eric Swalwell will be holding a town hall at the Factory 12 Event loft at 2 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.

Swalwell’s wife, Brittany Watts Swalwell, is a Columbus native.

He said he has come to love the city and it is one place he feels most relaxed.

The 38-year-old Swalwell is a four term member of Congress and is founder and chairman emeritus of Future Forum, a Democratic group aimed at millennial Americans.

Swalwell said it is exciting to be part of the biggest field of Democratic presidential contenders in more than 40 years.

Swalwell talks about what he brings to the campaign that sets him apart from the other Democrats seeking the presidency.

Swalwell made the decision to run the night that Donald Trump was elected as president. In part, his decision was reached after working with a distinguished Hoosier, former Rep. Lee Hamilton.

Doors will open at 1:15 p.m. at the Factory 12 Event loft, 1235 Jackson Street, and you can RSVP here.
