Democratic Rep. Jeff Van Drew to Switch Parties

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Democratic Rep. Jeff Van Drew (NJ), one of the party's few self-professed opponents of impeachment, is set to officially switch sides and become a Republican. An official announcement is reportedly expected next week; Van Drew's district voted for President Donald Trump in 2016. Reports on all sides focused on similar details. Van Drew reportedly met recently with Trump; several members of his staff have resigned ahead of the switch; and bipartisan criticism of he and his decision doesn't bode well for his 2020 re-election campaign.
