President Donald Trump is making a campaign stop in deep-blue New Jersey to reward Rep. Jeff Van Drew for switching parties last month and voting against his impeachment.

The Trump campaign announced he will travel to Wildwood, New Jersey, in Van Drew's district on Jan. 28 to hold a rally.

Trump endorsed the Democrat-turned-Republican during an Oval Office meeting on Dec. 19. Van Drew said at the time that he believed the GOP was a “better fit” and promised Trump his “undying support."

Trump promised to return the favor and announced that he was endorsing Van Drew for reelection and labeled him “a tremendous asset for the party."
