- Jeff Van Drew won his New Jersey GOP primary with 85 percent of the vote
- He said it was because of the support for Donald Trump and the energy of his supporters

- “In my opinion the worst president, the worst administration in the history of America,” he told Fox News on Wednesday morning
Democrat-turned Republican Rep. Jeff Van Drew won his New Jersey primary in a landslide victory he said Wednesday was due to support for Donald Trump and the Biden administration’s historically poor record.
Van Drew won with more than 85 percent of the vote.
He switched parties in 2020 and drove to the Republican nomination Tuesday night.
He credited Biden and his supporters with helping him win.
“They believe in my message which is freedom and hard work and make sure we obey the rule of law and that we close our borders and that we stop this inflation and pretty much everything this government has done and pretty much.” everything that president has done has been so destructive,” he told Fox and Friends.
“In my opinion the worst president, the worst administration in the history of America.”
Tuesday was another signpost heading into the midterms as analysts scoured the results for clues.
Several votes were dominated by issues related to crime.

Targeting the Biden administration, Drew said crime problems were caused by immigration and that Democrats released criminals to commit crimes again

In San Francisco, a liberal district attorney was removed. And voters propelled a Republican-turned Democratic billionaire running on a ticket for more cops on the street to first place in the Los Angeles mayoral race, ahead of a progressive candidate.
As crime rises in the minds of voters, Democrats – who have made criminal justice a central part of their platforms – face difficult choices.
President Joe Biden admitted as much himself when he left Washington for California and the Summit of the Americas.
“Voters sent a clear message last night,” Biden said.
“Both parties need to step up and do something about crime and gun violence.”
Republicans see an opportunity to strike in November’s midterm elections as they try to regain control of Congress.
Van Drew said Democrats had been too soft and let repeat offenders free to insult again.
“Second, it tells me that we need to make sure you know what we stand for as Republicans, which is the rule of law,” he said.
“Which means you have closed borders, you have a working immigration system, you make sure you don’t demean the police or in any way try to disappoint or hurt them.
“For you to truly stand up for what is right and safe and free. It’s not complicated.”
Van Drew wreaked havoc on the South Jersey political scene during 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 of Cape May County.
Democrats thought they had the perfect challenger to retake the seat in 2020 — Amy Kennedy, daughter-in-law of the late Ted Kennedy.
But Van Drew managed to win over Republicans and retained some of his Democratic support.
This time he said Trump’s support has been invaluable.
‘He was with me the whole time. He supported me,” said Van Drew.
“Not only has he supported me, he’s had me at Mar-a-Lago and in New York and we have a real friendship.
“I believe in what he did by actually destroying the swamp and telling the truth about what’s really going on. People want the truth. You want change.
“They don’t want this America, this dysfunctional America, that this government is creating.
“And I stand for getting our America back. We’re going to bring America home.’
