And New Jersey is a solidly blue state. Imagine the chill that goes down the spine of the Democrats when they read this. Biden, Sanders, Warren, and Bloomberg would have difficulty filling a gymnasium in Jersey. Have the rally at MetLife Stadium, Mr. President.
Trump rally in Wildwood now has 100K ticket requests, Rep. Van Drew says. The venue holds 7,400.
By NJ Advance Media, January 20, 2019:
About 100,000 tickets have been requested for President Donald Trump’s rally at the Wildwoods Convention Center next week – the highest demand for any event the president has held, U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew told Fox News during an interview Sunday.
“It’s been exciting and I’m proud to say for his event – of all the events he’s done in all the country – we’ve had the most ticket requests,” said Van Drew, R-2nd Dist., who recently switched parties after losing support from Democratic leaders for opposing impeachment.
Trump is slated to appear at the Wildwoods Convention Center at 7 p.m. on Jan. 28. Trump’s re-election campaign announced he was coming to Cape May County earlier this month to support Van Drew.
Van Drew was one of two Democratic congressman to vote against the president’s impeachment and changed parties officially soon after.
“We’re proud to have him,” Van Drew said. “It shows he cares about the big towns and big places and he also cars about the little places.”
The claim that the New Jersey rally broke a record for ticket requests could not be independently verified. While news organizations have reported on crowd sizes at other Trump rallies, news reports often do no include the number of people who requested tickets ahead of an event.
Tickets for the Wildwood rally were made available online for free. Event organizers have said they are making plans for overflow crowds.
Wildwood Mayor Pete Byron said last week he had heard estimates that 40,000 tickets had been issued for an event being held in a venue that can hold 7,400 people. There is also the possibility another 10,000 may show up to the city.
