MAGA Republican who switched from the Democrats calls Biden administration the ‘worst in American history’ and thanks Trump for his endorsement after getting 85% of the vote in his New Jersey primary

  • Jeff Van Drew won his GOP primary in New Jersey with 85 percent of the vote 
  • He said it was down to Donald Trump’s backing and the energy of his supporters
  • And he reserved particular scorn for Joe Biden and his administration 
  • ‘Worst president, worst administration, in the history literally of America in my opinion,’ he told Fox News on Wednesday morning 

Democrat-turned-Republican Rep. Jeff Van Drew won his New Jersey primary in a landslide, which he said Wednesday was down to the backing of Donald Trump and the Biden administration’s historically bad record.

Van Drew won with more than 85 percent of the vote.

He switched parties in 2020, and cruised to the Republican nomination on Tuesday night.

He credited Biden with helping him to victory, as well as his supporters.

‘They believe in my message which is freedom and hard work, and making sure that we obey the rule of law, and that we close our borders and that we stop this inflation and that pretty much everything this administration has done, and pretty much everything that this president has done has been so destructive,’ he told Fox and Friends.

‘Worst president, worst administration, in the history literally of America in my opinion.’  

Tuesday was another signpost along the road to the midterms, as analysts pored over the results for clues. 

Several votes were dominated by questions about crime.

A liberal district attorney was ousted in San Francisco. And voters propelled a Republican-turned-Democratic billionaire running on a more-cops-on-the-street ticket into first place in the Los Angeles mayoral race, ahead of a progressive candidate. 

With crime rising in the minds of voters, Democrats – who have made criminal justice a central piece of their platforms – face difficult decisions.

President Joe Biden admitted as much himself as he left Washington for California and the Summit of the Americas.

‘The voters sent a clear message last night,’ said Biden.

‘Both parties have to step up and do something about crime as well as gun violence.’

Republicans see a chance to strike in November’s midterms as they look to regain control of Congress.

Van Drew said Democrats had been too soft, releasing repeat offenders to offend again. 

‘Number two, what it tells me is that we’ve got to make sure that you know what we stand for as Republicans is the rule of law,’ he said.

‘Which means that you do have borders that are closed, that you do have an immigration system that works, that you do make sure that you don’t demean or, you know, in any way try to defund or hurt the police.

‘That you really do stand up for what’s right and safe and free. It’s not complicated.’ 

Van Drew caused chaos in the South Jersey political scene in his first term as a congressman. 

He refused to vote for Trump’s impeachment and decided to switch parties soon after, pledging his ‘undying support’ for Trump, who later endorsed the congressman and held a rally in Van Drew’s home Cape May County. 

Democrats thought they had the perfect challenger to win back the seat in 2020 – Amy Kennedy, daughter-in-law of the late Ted Kennedy.

But Van Drew managed to win over Republicans and hold on to some of his Democratic support.

This time around he said Trump’s endorsement had been invaluable. 

‘He’s been with me all along. He supported me,’ said Van Drew. 

‘Not only did he endorse me, but he’s had me at Mar-a-Lago and in New York and we have a real friendship. 

‘I believe in what he did in that he actually broke up the swamp, and he told the truth about what’s really going on. People want the truth. They want change. 

‘They don’t want this America, this dysfunctional America that this administration is creating. 

‘And I stand for that we’re going to get our America back. We’re going to bring America home.’
