    On the one hand I'll give him credit for sticking to his principles. On the other hand there had to be reasons he ran as a (D) as opposed to a (R). Seems to me that the thing you do here is switch to (I).

    There was a period of a couple of years in the 90's when a load of Democrats switched sides. I cannot remember the exact reason, but it was right after the GOP won the Congress for the first time in like 60 years. Let's hope it happens again.

    Anti-impeachment Democrat Jeff Van Drew meets with Trump to discuss party switch
    Anti-impeachment Democrat Jeff Van Drew meets with Trump to discuss party switch

    Rep. Jeff Van Drew, D-N.J., met with President Trump on Friday to discuss going across party lines and joining the Republican Party -- this after he has spent months criticizing fellow Democrats for their push to impeach Trump.
    A source confirmed to Fox News on Saturday that Van Drew met with Trump to discuss switching parties.
    Another source told Fox News that Van Drew may be seeking a Rose Garden ceremony if he were to switch. Van Drew is one of two Democrats who opposed the resolution codifying the impeachment probe. In addition, Van Drew indicated last week he would not support impeachment and thought impeachment would backfire on Democrats......

    ......He said the "Founding Fathers had vigorous debates of whether they would even allow impeachment in the Constitution," and that he favors allowing voters to decide the matter in next year's election.
    "You don't disenfranchise voters, millions upon millions of voters. Voters choose their leaders in America," Van Drew had said.

    House Democratic leadership expects to lose members during the impeachment vote. One of those members could be presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, who is giving up her congressional seat to focus on the 2020 race.


    Gabbard is not an establishment Democrat, nor is she a party loyalist. Indeed, much of her presidential campaign has been spent distancing herself from the Democratic Party — a party that is no longer one “of, by, and for the people,” she said last month. Gabbard wants to represent a new, better Democratic Party. If she’s serious, then she should vote against impeachment
