Why Wildwood? Well, remember last month when Congressman Jeff Van Drew switched political parties and joined the GOP? Tuesday’s rally is part of the political payback.
"There are millions of Democrats who feel disassociated from their party and how far left it has drifted and want to become Republicans and want to support President Trump this coming November,” Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh, a Delaware County native, told KYW Newsradio. “Jeff Van Drew personifies that whole phenomenon.”
Thousands of people have signed up for tickets, so don’t show up without one, and if you want to get in the hall, get there early. Once the center reaches its capacity at about 7,500, the overflow crowd will watch on outdoor screens.
Wildwood officials expect a big crowd but say they’ll be able to accommodate.
The last time a sitting president visited Cape May County was when Benjamin Harrison was in office in 1891.
