Democratic Senator-elect Jeff Van Drew told CNN Thursday that, he will vote against Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
Jeff Van Drew says he will vote against Pelosi on floor and says "I'd have to say yes" when asked if he were concerned about being punished. Other freshmen Ds who opposed Pelosi equivocate.

Van Drew defeated Republican rival Seth Grossman in the 2nd District congressional race. The win would returned the seat to Democratic control after more than 20 years as a GOP seat, held by longtime incumbent Frank LoBiondo, who announced his retirement last year.
