‘Thank Van Drew’ Ads to Start This Weekend

The super PAC called The Committee to Defend the President will begin airing a “Thank Van Drew” ad praising Rep. Jeff Van Drew for switching to the Republican Party, a spokesman said Friday.

“We wanted to do everything we could to support the congressman,” said Ted Harvey, chairman of the super PAC. “Having people contact him … he will be able to keep track of the people calling. Clearly he doesn’t know the Republicans in the district. It’s going to be a great introduction.”

The ad will start this weekend and run for about a week on TV channels like CBS, ABC, NBC, and Fox News Channel.
