Obama/Holder Group to Spend $30M Targeting ‘Vulnerable’ Republicans in These States…

Former President Barack Obama, and his attorney general Eric Holder, are jumping back into the political fray in a major way in 2018, The New York Times reported on Wednesday.

Holder’s group, the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), could spend up to $30 million in 2018, the Times reported:

The strategy has the potential to inject a new volume of money, on the Democratic side, into typically low-profile elections. Mr. Holder said the group has raised more than $16 million out of a previously announced $30 million goal, but it has not disclosed how much cash it has on hand.

Obama and Holder “reviewed” Holder’s strategy on Monday, which the Times reported targets “wherever Republicans appear to be vulnerable.”

The list of states Holder and Obama want to target includes:

  • Michigan
  • Wisconsin
  • Colorado
  • Minnesota
  • Nevada
  • Ohio
  • Florida
  • North Carolina

NTK Network previously reported on the NDRC, noting its mission is to redistrict in Democrats’ favor.

Holder was also in the news this week for a different reason: he’s eyeing a 2020 run for president.

Is the NDRC a vehicle for Holder’s presidential ambitions? Is it just a partisan group targeting Republicans under the guise of nonpartisan redistricting? Either way, look for the NDRC to make a big splash in 2018.
