Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ), who recently defected to the Republican Party over the Democrats’ partisan impeachment effort, said 100,000 tickets had been requested for the event.
The rally is slated to kick off at 7:00 P.M. EST at the Wildwoods Convention Center.
Only around 5,000 people live in Wildwood full-time during the winter. The town’s officials have scrambled to put measures in place to ensure its roads can accommodate the massive inflow of traffic.
Thousands of people are expected outside New Jersey are expected to travel hours for the rally, including one die-hard Trump supporter Maria Cleary who lives in Warrington Township, Pennsylvania.
“For the first time, in my adult life, I’m passionate about a president and his vision for our country, his vision to put all Americans regardless of race, creed, color, or religion first,” Cleary told NJ.com. “I love that we have an unapologetically authentic president, a president who doesn’t speak in the delicate dialect of diplomacy but rather speaks to and stands up for the American citizens whom he was elected to represent. It doesn’t bother me that our president isn’t always nice and is at times inartful when he speaks; he’s strong and decisive, exactly why I voted for him in 2016.”
