California Democrat Eric Swalwell is close to deciding to run for president in 2020. Here's where he stands on key issues

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., tells CNBC he expects to make an announcement "soon" about whether to run for president in 2020.

He says he would have a largely economic message that appeals to voters who feel left out and left behind.

Other major issues for Swalwell are a "health-care guarantee," more federal spending in medical innovation and gun violence prevention.

LOS ANGELES Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., told CNBC he expects to make an announcement "soon" about whether to run for president in 2020.

He has already added staff and offices in some key early states as he builds out a national campaign infrastructure.

"It's just making sure that we find the right moment when we're ready to go," Swalwell said of his 2020 plans last week. "But right now I see nothing but green lights."

The north Silicon Valley congressman sees the focus on jobs and the economy and how Americans are struggling and feel "disconnected" and hurt by the policies of President Donald Trump. He proposes a variety of initiatives to create more jobs and opportunities, including workforce training, infrastructure investment and tax changes to boost growth in low-income communities.
