Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) admitted that Democrats talking about impeaching President Trump wasn’t a message that would work for the party in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections during a panel discussion on Tuesday.

“Democrats have to decide what their message is,” former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) said. “Republicans will start spending money about 90 days out, and it will be spent on some hard messaging. They’ll say we voted for lower taxes. Democrats voted for higher taxes.”

“Congressman, I happen to agree,” MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle said. “I don’t know if I’ve heard a clear Democratic message. And we talk about the House flipping and the immediate next conversation is, will he get impeached? That doesn’t seem to be what everyday Americans care about.”

“That’s not a winner,” Swalwell said. “And we shouldn’t miss the message that voters sent to us when they elected Donald Trump, which is a lot of them felt opportunity was out of reach, and they thought he was the guy who could put it back in reach.”
