Van Drew now on brief asking to delay certification of Biden election

New Jersey congressman had initially been listed as a South Carolina represenative

New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-Dennis) was one of more than 100 Republican House members supporting an Amicus brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to delay the certification of presidential electors in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Van Drew had initially not been included on the list, according to published reports, but he had incorrectly been listed as a congressman from South Carolina.  That has now been fixed.

Van Drew had been elected as a Democrat in 2018 but switched parties in late 2019 after refusing to support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The other GOP congressman from New Jersey, Christopher Smith (R-Hamilton), is not among those on the Amicus brief.

A Project Ready poll exclusively reported by the New Jersey Globe, showed that 77% of New Jersey Republicans believe Trump won the presidential election.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal has signed on to ask the top court to reject the petition.

“The people have chosen,” Grewal said in a tweet on Thursday.  “These baseless lawsuits and this misinformation campaign must end.
