Eric Holder, who served as attorney general during the Obama administration from 2009 to 2015, is the chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee.
The website of the NDRC states:
The NDRC will play a significant role in safeguarding American democracy by launching a comprehensive electoral program in 17 states to defend the state and local level positions that are essential to safeguarding and bolstering our democracy.
Building on our proven methodology that altered the game on redistricting, we are now utilizing our success in prior election cycles to shine a light on the state and local elections that are most vital to preserving our democracy. The NDRC’s Democracy Defenders will act as vital barriers against anti-democratic and Republican state initiatives.”
The NDRC website displays a map of “Democracy Defenders” in the form of certain states, but nowhere does it mention that the United States is a Constitutional Republic governed by laws and three branches of government for checks and balances, with aspects of democracy but not Democracy in its purest form.
Eric Holder, who presides over the NDRC, is a native of New York City, a populous state that would hold sway if individual votes replaced the electoral system.
Holder has a bachelor’s degree and a law degree from Columbia University in New York.
He is a member of the National Board of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
After 2015, he returned Covington & Burling LLP, where he had been a partner earlier.
Holder is now back in the public eye, doing interviews and pushing election-related causes.
Holder is concerned that the Republican Party “just ain’t that into democracy” despite the fact that the United States of America was founded as and remains a Constitutional Republic.
