Eric Holder Statement on Wisconsin Supreme Court Election
Tonight, Eric H. Holder, Jr., Chairman of the NDRC and 82nd Attorney General of the United States, released the following statement on Judge Rebecca Dallet’s victory in the race for the Wisconsin Supreme Court:
“Judge Rebecca Dallet will be an independent voice for fairness and common sense on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Under the leadership of Scott Walker and his administration, the right to vote has been systematically attacked and the concerns of corporations, outside special interests and the Republican party placed ahead of the people. Today, the voters of Wisconsin took a critical first step toward a state government that better reflects their needs and interests.”
If we’re going to secure fair maps for the next decade, Democrats need to win critical battles before 2021 redistricting.
We’re on the right path. In the past few years the NDRC has helped fair map Democrats make big gains -- winning nine governors races, flipping eight state legislative chambers, and winning three state Supreme Court races.
But to keep winning in 2020 and ensure fair maps for a decade to come, we need to double down on our efforts now. Will you pitch in to help us fund our multi-pronged strategy to end Republican gerrymandering and demand fair elections?
That’s why the NDRC is fighting back to even the playing field and make sure every voter is heard. Join us today:
