Eric Holder Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Rulings on Partisan Gerrymandering Cases
Washington, D.C. — Today, 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 today’s Supreme Court actions on partisan gerrymandering:
“Given today’s Supreme Court actions, we anticipate further legal challenges to the partisan gerrymandering that is undermining our democracy. But let me be clear: The National Democratic Redistricting Committee’s strategy for fair maps is not dependent upon a single court ruling and our work is now more important than ever. We will continue to execute our comprehensive approach of taking legal action, supporting ballot reform initiatives, building a grassroots movement of citizens who want to end gerrymandering, and electing Democrats committed to fairness in the redistricting process when maps are redrawn in 2021.”
Republicans have rigged our elections by gerrymandering districts all across the country. This unfair advantage is making it harder for Democrats to fight climate change, pass gun control, and ensure access to health care for everyone.
That’s why the NDRC is fighting back to even the playing field and make sure every voter is heard. Join us today:
