New Republican House member from New Jersey Jeff Van Drew, who switched parties from Democrat over the impeachment hoax, says there are other moderate House Democrats waiting to join him in GOP ranks. According to him, they are waiting to see how he does as a Republican.
“When it does go well, I do believe there will be other people that will think the same way. There are some good moderate Democrats on the other side and I really believe they belong on the Republican side,” he told Fox News’ “Outnumbered Overtime.”
Van Drew said that the Democrats were “lurching” too far to the left.
“It’s becoming more of a socialist party and that is not what I signed up for,” stressing that he will not be a lockstep Republican vote on every matter. And, he said, “that’s the way politics should be.”
How does the presidential race stack up according to Van Drew?
“I think they saw some polling that scared the daylights out of them and now the Democrats are stuck with a candidate that almost nobody wants,” he said, referring to Joe Biden.
Van Drew’s comments were made Monday, before Biden’s Super Tuesday victories. But the point is still valid. Smart Democrats see the problem child Joe Biden is on the campaign trail. His gaffes are only surpassed by his strange speech patterns. This man will be raw meat for Donald Trump during the debates and there are likely vulnerable Democrat House freshmen, and others, from moderate districts who don’t relish running on the same ticket with Sleepy Joe.
They have enough problems as it is trying to convince their middle of the road electorate that there is a good reason they belong to the de facto socialist open borders and infanticide party. Will some of them jump ship before an actual socialist is their party leader? Or leave before a guy who mumbles the Declaration of Independence takes the big nod in Milwaukee?
If just under twenty of them did, Nancy Pelosi would be looking for a new job.
