DEMOCRATS THROUGHOUT THE 2ND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY JOIN WITH MARTIN LUTHER KING III FOR
CAPE MAY COUNTY INDIVISIBLE’S PEACEFUL PROTEST RALLY
“This Will Our Moment to Show Trump and Van Drew that Democrats Stand Together and are Unified Against
Hate, Corruption, and the Status Quo.”
– Brigid Callahan Harrison, Democratic candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s second congressional district
[January 27, 2020 – Longport, New Jersey] — Brigid Callahan Harrison, Democratic candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s second congressional district, will join together on Tuesday, January 28, with Democratic leaders, more than three dozen grassroots organizations from throughout the region, and her fellow Democratic candidates running for Congress at the Cape May County Indivisible’s peaceful protest rally, which will run counter to the Trump and Van Drew political rally scheduled for later in the evening.
“Based on all we have seen these last few weeks from Donald Trump and his pawn Jeff Van Drew, I think it’s fair to say that South Jersey is pumped to share their voice,” stated Harrison. “I commend the organizers of Cape May County Indivisible for organizing this event, asking each Democratic candidate to attend, and bringing our many great communities together. While the 2nd district brings many different voices to the political landscape, one thing we have shown time and time again is our ability to work together, unify, and fight for what is right. Trump rallies have come to symbolize blame, hate, racism, misogyny and divisiveness and I bet we will see much of the same show during his visit to South Jersey. Thanks to Cape May County Indivisible, there will be another story to tell on Tuesday night – one of unity and solidarity. South Jersey’s unity against Trump, Van Drew, and all they have come to stand for.
Trump’s visit to the area comes on the heels of Harrison’s call on Monday for Van Drew to resign from Congress, After news broke that President Trump had directly told his National Security Advisor John Bolton of his plans to freeze millions in security assistance to the country of Ukraine until officials helped with investigations against the Biden, Harrison stated, “It is clear this issue has now evolved to the point that Van Drew helped conspire to help Trump get away with a crime. I was the first to publicly suggest that Van Drew deserved a primary challenge for his actions back in November, and now it is clear, with this breaking and developing information, it is time for him to step aside and resign.”
