Eric Holder Statement on Election Results in Virginia

Tonight, Eric H. Holder, Jr., the 82nd Attorney General of the United States and Chair of National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), released the following statement on the election results in Virginia:

“Ralph Northam will be a governor for all Virginians and his victory is a rejection of politicians who seek to win elections by dividing our citizens. Even with electoral maps that were badly gerrymandered by Republicans during the last round of redistricting, the citizens of Virginia have sent a resounding message tonight. I look forward to working with Ralph Northam in his fight to restore fairness to electoral maps so that they better reflect the diversity and compassion of Virginia’s communities.”
