Hi Eric, my name is Wesley Hunt, I’m a Republican nominee in a Congressional District that is 70% white. I’m black, I’m in an interracial marriage, and my wife and I have two biracial daughters. Republicans are celebrating diversity while white liberals like yourself race-bait. https://t.co/r7bSNlskVp

Hunt will likely be elected to Congress in November. He is running in a solidly red district.
Rep. Donalds, a freshman member, similarly dismissed Swalwell’s position, writing “You are such a fool. What is wrong with you! More gaslighting from the radical left!”
Some have, in an effort to undermine the absurdity of Swalwell’s words, pointed out that Justice Clarence Thomas is himself in an interracial marriage.
Swalwell’s claim arrived as Democrats began a rhetorical barrage in response to the leaked draft. According to a Gallup survey conducted in 2021, 94% of Americans approve of interracial marriage.
