NJ Citizen Action Says Democratic Party Should Withdraw Backing From Van Drew

Insider NJ — October 31, 2019

New Jersey Citizen Action released this statement today following Congressman Jeff Van Drew's (D-2) vote against formalizing the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

"New Jersey Citizen Action is calling the New Jersey Democractic Party to replace Jeff Van Drew as the Democratic candidate in the 2nd Congressional District," said Phyllis Salowe-Kaye, Executive Director of New Jersey Citizen Action. "Representative Van Drew does not uphold the values of Democratic Party and does not deserve its backing. President Trump stands accused of impeachable offenses that, if true, would undermine the very foundation of our democracy and an impeachment inquiry must be pursued. While disappointed in Van Drew we are pleased that all members of the Democratic House Caucus except two voted to affirm the impeachment inquiry."

New Jersey Citizen Action is a statewide advocacy and social service organization that fights for social, racial and economic justice for all while also meeting the pressing needs of low and moderate income New Jerseyans through education and direct service.
