New Jersey Monday, January 13, 2020- Erica Collins announced on Monday she is contemplating running for Congress against former New Jersey Democrat Jeff Van Drew who recently switched parties.
Raised in Cherry Hill, NJ, Collins is a Progressive, Civil & Women's Rights Activist/Advocate, Conscious Thought Leader, Media Influencer and Social Entrepreneur. She is an Executive Producer and co-Host of a Progressive Podcast entitled Blog Talk Radio's Pulse of the People http://blogtalkradio.com/
Collins plans to develop an exploratory committee and a "LISTENING TOUR" of the people of the counties in New Jersey on issues surrounding Equal Pay, Healthcare and Education amongst others.
A descendent of America's oldest African American community Gouldtown, first interracial-
Collins said, "I AM the ORIGINAL JERSEY GIRL that MAKES AMERICA GREAT" in a statement on Monday.
"Where is the American Dream my ancestors built right here in New Jersey? A FEARLESS COMMUNITY of all races, cultures and religions fighting for freedom and democracy, NOT divided by a fake presidency who gaslights fake news, to the point of convincing a congressman to become a traitor; not only to his party, but the nation. Congressman John Van Drew is now among the symbols of the HYPOCRISY of our DEMOCRACY."
Donald Trump is no longer the symptom of a disease of some morally lost Americans, he is the serious virus spreading to leaders like Jeff Van Drew," Collins said in a statement. "Together, I believe the people and communities of New Jersey and America can find a cure with a fearless leader!"
Collins would join four other Democrats seeking their party's nomination for New Jersey's 2nd Congressional District seat and would run against freshman Rep. Jeff Van Drew, who joined the Republican Party after opposing the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
Van Drew, who voted against both articles of impeachment against Trump, was struggling in New Jersey politics as a Democrat.
