Dear Democrats:

 

There is nothing more important to the democratic party than its values, principles, and unity, all necessary to accomplish the agenda of the people we represent. It is with that in mind that my friend, State and Passaic County Chairman John Currie and I stand unified by reaching an agreement about the future of the New Jersey State Democratic Party.

Trump in 2008: It would have been "wonderful" if Pelosi had impeached George W. Bush

Donald Trump told CNN's Wolf Blitzer in 2008 that it would have been "wonderful" if Speaker Nancy Pelosi had moved to impeach former President George W. Bush because he said "all sorts of things that turned out not to be true" about the war in Iraq.

Why it matters: Trump's feelings about Bush over a decade ago are a far cry from the letter he sent Pelosi on the eve of his own impeachment, calling the inquiry against him an "illegal, partisan attempted coup" and alleging that "more due process was afforded to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials."

DEMOCRATIC SENATORS ARE TWEETING PHOTOS OF THE GIANT PILE OF 'DEAD' HOUSE-PASSED BILLS ON MITCH MCCONNELL'S DESK

U.S. Senators are sharing photographs of the growing pile of bills passed by the House only to stymie on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's desk.

The stack, a symbolic replication of legislation McConnell refuses to bring to a vote, was reportedly the brain child of Senator Debbie Stabenow. According to her office, it includes more than 300 bills about voter registration, background checks for firearm sales, domestic violence, climate change, minimum wage increases and other issues.

South Jersey Democratic Chairs Want Money Back from Van Drew

Let's not mince words. Congressman Jeff Van Drew must return contributions he received since his "NO" vote on President Trump’s impeachment inquiry since he was capitalizing on his relationships with Democrats while planning all along to switch parties.

Just yesterday as speculation swirled about his intentions, Van Drew had the gall to send out a campaign fundraising solicitation featuring an event with Governor Phil Murphy, Senator Bob Menendez, and other key Democratic donors knowing he had just met with President Trump in the Oval Office to switch parties.

Van Drew’s Party Switch No Surprise To Dems

“Since holding elected office in the state legislature, Congressman Van Drew’s position on important issues has always been far right and out-of-step with the values of the Democratic Party. Democrats cringe at his opposition to sensible gun control laws, same sex marriage and raising the living wages of working people. Voting against the impeachment inquiry was the tipping point that ended his standing with democrats,” said Cape May County Democratic Chairman Brendan Sciarra.

Menendez leaving Van Drew’s future to county chairs

U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez declined to endorse Rep. Jeff Van Drew for re-election Friday, signaling that he would follow the lead of the congressman’s county chairs.

“I don’t know that he’s going to run again, number one. Number two, there is a process. I think he’s in parts of seven counties, so seven county chairs and seven county Democratic organizations are going to go through their process to determine who they support,” Menendez said. “When that whole process is finished … then I’ll have something to say.”
