Van Drew pledges ‘undying support’ for Trump as he switches parties

Rep. Jeff Van Drew on Thursday formally became a Republican, pledging his “undying support“ for Donald Trump as the ex-Democrat sat next to the president in the White House.

“I believe that this is just a better fit for me,” the New Jersey lawmaker said, following a meeting with Trump on Thursday afternoon. “This is who I am.”

Van Drew made the move after breaking with the Democrats on impeachment, voting against both articles on Wednesday night.
