    WASHINGTON (AP) — Top House Republicans have been told that Democratic New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew is going to switch parties and become a Republican. That’s according to a GOP official familiar with the conversations who spoke on condition of anonymity on Saturday to describe confidential information.

    Van Drew is a freshman who has said he plans to vote against impeaching President Donald Trump.

    Only a small handful of Democrats are expected to oppose Trump’s impeachment in a vote expected next week. Van Drew represents a southern New Jersey congressional district that Trump carried in 2016. Van Drew has been considered one of the more vulnerable House Democrats in next November’s elections.
