You can forgive yourself for not knowing who Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) is heading into tonight’s Democratic debate. But the California congressman, who is running on a gun control platform, got his name out there immediately by burning the hell out of front-runner Joe Biden.

Swalwell pulled out an old Biden quote from 31 years ago, when the former vice president, then running for president in 1988, said it was time to pass the torch to a younger generation.

Swalwell told Biden, who is 76, that he was right, it’s time to pass the torch.
