United States Congressman Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ-2 has once again earned one of the toughest to get and most coveted Republican endorsements there is.

Congressman Van Drew has exclusively confirmed to me that Former United States President Donald Trump has endorsed his candidacy re-election in the upcoming November 8, 2022 mid-term national elections.

President Trump first endorsed Van Drew in the Oval Office, when Van Drew switched political parties in the run-up to the November 2, 2020 election.

With this move, Van Drew became the first member of The United States House of Representatives history to switch from the majority party to the minority party.

The expectation now is that Van Drew should move right back to the majority party following the 2022 election.

In modern American history, the sitting President’s party has lost an average of 28 seats in the first mid-term election.

This average number of lost seats happens with no major problems going on in the country.

This year, inflation has skyrocketed. The Biden Administration response to COVID-19 and the newest variant has been shaky.

There is an overall dour mood in America. The House Democrats currently have at least 70 members who are in jeopardy of losing their seats.

A number of high-profile Democrats have already announced that they will not be running for re-election.

They won’t submit out loud, but, Democrats believe that they have already lost their slim majority in the House of Representatives.

Barack Obama-Joe Biden lost more than 60 seats in the 2010 mid-term elections.

Republicans only need to pick-up five seats to take back the majority.

President Trump has previously confirmed that he will be very selective in terms of endorsing candidates for election or re-election.

As endorsements go, Van Drew has received the biggest Republican endorsement that there is … President Trump.

It delivers support and the ability to fundraise.

Where NJ's 'red wave' of the 2021 election was reddest

In 2017, Gov. Phil Murphy won the election by 14.1 percentage points, a margin exceeding 303,000. His re-election was much closer, an 84,000-vote, 3.2-point victory. He and others talked about a ‘red wave’ of Republican voters in the electorate, and certified results show which counties turned red most.
