Here Are the Republicans That Barack Obama and Eric Holder Want to Defeat in 2018

Is the National Democratic Redistricting Committee a public interest group, or just a vehicle to elect more Democrats?

Here Are the Republicans That Barack Obama and Eric Holder Want to Defeat in 2018

Earlier this week, NTK Network brought you the news that the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), a group run by ex-Attorney General Eric Holder and backed by ex-President Barack Obama, is targeting “vulnerable” Republicans in 2018.

Now, thanks to the Associated Press, we have a list of whom Holder and Obama are targeting:

The group is targeting races in 11 states, including nine gubernatorial races, 18 legislative chambers, two ballot initiatives and two down-ballot races. Eight more states are on the committee’s watch list.

In Ohio, a perennial political battleground, the committee plans to support Democrats for five offices — governor, auditor, secretary of state, Ohio Senate and Ohio House — as well as pushing a redistricting ballot measure.

Other target races include:

— Colorado: Governor, state Senate

— Florida: Governor, state Senate

— Georgia: Governor, state Senate

— Michigan: Governor, state Senate, state House, ballot initiative

— Minnesota: Governor, state Senate, state House

— Nevada: Governor, state Senate, state House

— North Carolina: State Senate, state House

— Pennsylvania: Governor, state Senate, state House

— Texas: State Senate, state House

— Wisconsin: Governor, state Senate

The new information further confirms that the NDRC is less interested in fair, nonpartisan redistricting than they are in simply defeating Republicans and electing more Democrats.

Of course, Obama and Holder have every right to engage in politics, especially in their role as private citizens. But they should stop pretending what they’re doing with the NDRC is about “fairness.”
