Somers Point, NJ, October 15, 2018 – Jeff Van Drew, the Democrat candidate for congress in NJ’s 2nd District, would follow his party in voting to impeach newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh if given the opportunity in Washington, and people only need to look at his recent public opposition to Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and his videotaped statement that “at the end of the day, I always stand with my party” as proof of his position.
“Van Drew’s revealed his true far-left Democrat ideology when he endorsed the “#believesurvivors” movement which was smearing Judge Kavanaugh during the Senate confirmation hearing, and when he stated to the NJ Globe that he wouldn’t vote for Kavanaugh even though there was absolutely no proof allegations against the judge were credible,” said Seth Grossman, the Republican candidate running against Van Drew for the NJ 2nd District Congressional seat.
“Van Drew is on tape confirming that he tows the party line, and his voting record in Trenton proves that. The New Jersey economy is in shambles because of his 16-year voting record walking lockstep with the Democrats helping make the state the 3rd most indebted state in the nation. If the Democrats regain control of Congress and Van Drew wins this election, they not only would vote to impeach Justice Kavanaugh, but also to impeach President Trump. In his own words, at the end of the day, Van Drew stands with his party The Trump voters in this district cannot allow that to happen.”
U.S. Senator Cory Booker, D-NJ, and U.S. representative Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, recently stated in interviews with Newsweek and the New York Times, respectively, that they would facilitate investigations and impeachment proceedings of Kavanaugh if the Democrats regain control of either the U.S. Senate or House of Representatives. Other federal legislators, including Democrat Senator Marie Hirono of Hawaii and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi also have been asked about pursuing Kavanaugh’s ouster. California Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been calling for Trump’s impeachment and hostile mob demonstrations by the Democrats for several months.
“It’s no secret that the Kavanaugh confirmation has become a defining issue of the midterm election. But it’s not just about Kavanaugh, it’s about President Trump and the Democrats’ unhinged obsession to unseat him and repeal all the advances he has been making with his Make America Great Again Agenda,” Grossman said. “The very fact that they would want to revoke the tax cuts that have helped the middle class, and undue all the phenomenal trade deals and the explosive job growth of the last two years proves they do not listen to or care about the forgotten American citizen that voted for Trump. I support President Trump, and those voters must turn out again and elect the Trump Republicans in the midterms.”
“This election is no longer a simple question of preferring one political party over another. The very character of our nation is at stake. Do we want a prosperous economy, more jobs and more money in our pockets? The Republican do. The Democrats don’t. Do we want to secure our border and enforce legal immigration? The Republicans do. The Democrats don’t. Do we want the 2nd Amendment and gun rights? The Republicans do. The Democrats don’t. Just go down the list – the differences are stark and clear, and so is the choice that President Trump and the Republicans must continue to lead this nation,” Grossman said.
Seth Grossman and Jeff Van Drew are facing off in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District. The seat, which has been represented by retiring U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo for 24 years, includes the counties of Cape May, Atlantic, Cumberland and Salem and parts of Camden, Gloucester, Burlington and Ocean counties. Donald Trump won the district by five points in the 2016 election.
