Eric Holder Complains that Republicans Rigged the System

Former Attorney General Eric Holder spoke at the at the Center for American Progress (CAP) Action Fund on Thursday regarding the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC).

NDRC was started by President Obama and Holder to combat Republican redistricting efforts once Obama leaves office.

CAP President Neera Tanden asked Holder about his claims that the system is rigged for Republicans.

“I think, to be very frank that the Republican Party has realized that their governing philosophy is not a winning one,” Holder told Tanden. “And since they can’t win the game they’ve decided to change the rules.”

“Gerrymandering has always been a part of our political process, but I think what we’re seeing now is gerrymandering on steroids, and I think that’s the thing that we’re in the process of trying to combat,” Holder concluded.
