Van Drew Watch: In case our new ‘blue’ congressman is leaning toward funding Trump’s racist wall

Not for nothing, but if we’re really discussing ‘ANGRYWHITEMENISTAN,’ we should point out that Jeff Van Drew is sooooo YES on GUNS, that he got to Congress despite outrage over his 100% Rating from the NRA.  So in case JVD is leaning Trump’s way …

We’re entering the second month of Donald Trump’s government shutdown, and although the 4 freshman House members New Jersey blue wavedto victory haven’t even been in office that long, Rep. Jeff Van Drew’s CD2 constituents have already begun tracking his votes, his words and his decisions.

I hope that will mean both calling him on trying to blame any right-tilting votes he may have on his constituents, but also providing support when he does do the right thing. But let’s be frank: Keeping an eye on this congressman is good thinking, given his allegiance to the party machine that installed him in Congress, which he now owes and may serve over his obligation to the people, and given the strong progressive organizing emerging in a district led by a politician with only a technical after his name.

If you live in Jeff Van Drew’s CD2 district, our friends in Action Together Atlantic County ask that you sign this petition, and share it. They were told by Van Drew staff that “thousands” have called his office “in support” of funding Trump’s wall. They’re not buying it. Please only sign if you’re a constituent, and by all means let’s help send this petition way north of it’s 100-signer goal.
