For those who didn’t believe me when I confidently stated that Congressman-elect Jeff Van Drew will keep his word and not vote for Nancy Pelosi to be the next Speaker of the House, please consider the following...

When Van Drew confirmed during the campaign on Hurley in the Morning on WPG Talk Radio 104.1, the doubters said he will break his word.

When he confirmed (again) after his victory on Hurley in the Morning, the doubters said he will break his word.

When he confirmed (yet again) on The Todd Starnes Show when I filled in for Todd, the doubters still said he will break his word.

How about now? Van Drew has now signed a document with 16 other Democrats publicly confirming he will not vote for Pelosi.

The math is simple -- to become Speaker, Pelosi will need the Democrats to win 6 more house seats in the remaining still-too-close-to-call races and she’ll need every one of their votes and the other 212 Democrats.
