Swalwell Upsets Stark; Ends Reign Of California’s Longest-Serving Congressman

CONGRESS 15 | Dublin Councilman Eric Swalwell has registered on the biggest Congressional upsets in the nation Tuesday night after ending the 40-year reign of Rep. Pete Stark.

Swalwell beat Stark with 53.1 percent of the multi-county 15th Congressional District. Stark barely improved upon his win in the June primary with 46.9 percent.

The rise of Swalwell has been swift. In just a years time, the political novice, having served just a year on the Dublin City Council, makes the huge leap to Capitol Hill.

Eric Swalwell….85233…53.1%
Pete Stark…….75340…46.9%
