Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told CNN’s Poppy Harlow on Monday that he would “consider” a presidential run following the conclusion of the midterm elections.

Harlow pointed out that Swalwell had made ten trips to Iowa over the past 18 months. “Are you going to run for president?” she asked.

The House Intelligence Democrat said that he would “consider it” after helping Democrats running in the midterms. Swalwell further explained his Iowa trips by citing three Democrats running in competitive congressional races in the state.

The CNN host asked Swalwell why he would be the best nominee for Democrats.

He laid out his potential platform, arguing for increased health care access and green energy. “The future for our country is a page forward,” he said.
