Rep. Jeff Van Drew, a former Democrat who switched parties to become a Republican won re-election in NJ’s 2nd district.
Van Drew defeated Democrat Amy Kennedy by a margin of 53-47% in what was considered to be a tight contest.
AP calls #NJ02 for party-switching Rep. Jeff Van Drew. Big win for Republicans, helped by Trump coattails.
Candidly, didn't see this one coming.
