"He should demonstrate he is with us on something beyond the issue of arraignment," Jacci Vigilante, seat of the Gloucester County GOP, said as of late. 

Every one of the three Republican competitors who were running for his seat will remain in the race, for the minute resolute by Trump's Oval Office support of Van Drew, NAN reports. 

"Expedite it," said Bob Patterson, a Republican contender for Van Drew's seat, in an announcement. 

"South Jersey residents merits a congressman who will battle for them and their moderate qualities – not a liberal pioneer who battles for himself."
