”Congressman Van Drew’s decision to join Trump's GOP ranks does not align with the values we brought to this job when we joined his office,” the staffers wrote. One based in New Jersey, reportedly resigned Sunday evening, telling the Philadelphia Inquirer that “Defeating Trump has and always will be the main goal for me.”

Democrats reacted to Van Drew’s imminent defection with something of an eye roll. ”What he’s reacting to is that he can’t get renominated,” Rep. Jerry Nadler said Sunday. “His district's electorate is 24% to renominate him and 60% for anyone else.” Van Drew’s staff refused to go along with his cowardice; while their former boss is abandoning his values, the staffers aren’t abandoned. DCCC Chair Cheri Bustos:“These staffers just quit their jobs to stand up for their values. We'll bring them with the @dccc until they land new jobs that align with their values.”
