Former Democrat congressman Jeff Van Drew say that other centrist Democrats in the house might make the switch if Senator Bernie sanders becomes the Democrat Nominee for the 2020 Election.
Van Drew said other Democrats were considering joining the Republican Party because they fear the “down-ballot effect” of Sanders being nominated as the Democrat candidate for president.
“When it does go well, I do believe there will be other people that will think the same way. There are some good moderate Democrats on the other side, and I really believe they belong on the Republican side,” he said. “It’s becoming more of a socialist party, and that is not what I signed up for.”
Van Drew said the party failed at finding a more appealing candidate by failing to stop Sanders and the threat that his ideology posed.
He went on to say “I think they saw some polling that scared the daylights out of them, and now the Democrats are stuck with a candidate that almost nobody wants,”
