He had previously reported on the incredible Trump support being seen in New Jersey.
And it only continues to grow!
In the very blue state of New Jersey, a record-breaking 100,000 tickets have reportedly been requested for Trump’s upcoming rally.
The venue holds only 7,400.
Perhaps fearing they won’t get into the arena, thousands of “Deplorables” are already in line….over a day before President Trump is set to arrive!
Oh, but please CNN and MSDNC, please continue to tell me how “unpopular” he is!
Local Fox29 reports:
Fans are already lining up Monday morning in anticipation of President Donald Trump's Tuesday rally in Wildwood, New Jersey.
The president's visit will take place in the congressional district of U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew, who bucked Democrats to join a united Republican Party in opposing Trump's impeachment.
Trump endorsed the Democrat-turned-Republican during an Oval Office meeting on Dec. 19, when Van Drew formally announced he was leaving the Democratic Party after providing Trump with a symbolic victory in the prior day's impeachment vote.
Van Drew said at the time that he believed the GOP was a “better fit” and promised Trump his “undying support." Trump promised to return the favor and announced that he was endorsing Van Drew for reelection and labeled him “a tremendous asset for the party."
Cape May County Indivisible, a grassroots advocacy group, plans to protest Trump's visit outside the convention center.
“When hate comes to our backyard, we have a moral obligation to take action and not look away. We stand in solidarity with the historically marginalized communities that this administration is hurting," said CMC Indivisible Co-Chair Shayla Woolfort. "Thousands of kids in cages didn’t have the privilege of turning the other cheek. We stand in peaceful protest to reject the racism, bigotry, violence and corruption of the Trump administration.”
About 100,000 tickets have been requested for President Donald Trump’s rally at the Wildwoods Convention Center next week - the highest demand for any event the president has held, U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew told Fox News during an interview Sunday.
“It’s been exciting and I’m proud to say for his event - of all the events he’s done in all the country - we’ve had the most ticket requests,” said Van Drew, R-2nd Dist., who recently switched parties after losing support from Democratic leaders for opposing impeachment.
Trump is slated to appear at the Wildwoods Convention Center at 7 p.m. on Jan. 28. Trump’s re-election campaign announced he was coming to Cape May County earlier this month to support Van Drew.
Van Drew was one of two Democratic congressman to vote against the president’s impeachment and changed parties officially soon after.
“We’re proud to have him,” Van Drew said. “It shows he cares about the big towns and big places and he also cars about the little places.”
The claim that the New Jersey rally broke a record for ticket requests could not be independently verified. While news organizations have reported on crowd sizes at other Trump rallies, news reports often do no include the number of people who requested tickets ahead of an event.
Tickets for the Wildwood rally were made available online for free. Event organizers have said they are making plans for overflow crowds.
Wildwood Mayor Pete Byron said last week he had heard estimates that 40,000 tickets had been issued for an eventbeing held in a venue that can hold 7,400 people. There is also the possibility another 10,000 may show up to the city.
About 150,000 people are in Wildwood on a typical summer day, a Cape May County spokeswoman said.
The city has about 5,000 year-round residents.
And from the Washington Times:
There is much talk that New Jersey might one day flip from blue to red — particularly after Rep. Jefferson Van Drew, a New Jersey Democrat, left his party in December and became a Republican. President Trump personally welcomed him to the White House.
Mr. Van Drew reports that 100,000 people are now seeking tickets to one of Mr. Trump’s signature Keep America Great rallies, to be staged in Wildwood, New Jersey, on Jan. 28 in a venue that only seats about 7,500. The last time a president visited the area was in 1891, when Benjamin Harrison came to call.
Interest in the rally has proved to be a record-breaker for the Trump campaign.
“It’s exciting. And I’m proud to say for this event — of all the events President Trump has done — we’ve had the most ticket requests,” Mr. Van Drew told Fox News.
Other details reflect some shifting political sands in the state. New Jersey Women for Trump — a grassroots interest group — recently went from a handful of interested organizers to over 15,000 members in a matter of weeks.
“We are an independent support group for women and men who feel they are alone in their beliefs towards our president. Our goal is to tap into the silent majority of New Jersey women and men and let them know that they are not alone in their support of our president,” the organization noted in a mission statement.
Mr. Van Drew, meanwhile, will be on the stage with the president when the time comes later this month.
“Obviously this is a political function, there’s no question about that,” Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. told the Cape May Herald, a local news organization.
“Trump brings out many emotions from people. His supporters are very passionate, and the folks that dislike him are very passionate. There are going to be a lot of emotions running wild on the 28th,” the mayor predicted.
