Washington, D.C. – Eric H. Holder, Jr., the 82nd Attorney General of the United States and Chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, today announced his endorsement of Anita Earls in her race for the Supreme Court of North Carolina.
“Throughout her life, Anita Earls has been a leader in protecting civil rights and ensuring equal justice under the law,” said Holder. “Whether fighting unfair redistricting that undermines our democracy or increasing economic opportunity for the most vulnerable in our communities, she has been a champion for justice and fairness. I’m proud to support Anita and confident she will be an independent justice who will uphold equal protection under the law for all citizens of North Carolina.”
North Carolina is one of NDRC’s Electoral Targets for 2018. The targets include the states that were the most badly gerrymandered by Republicans in 2011.
