The Ohio Democratic Party is welcoming Eric H. Holder, Jr., the 82nd Attorney General of the United States and chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, to Columbus on Friday, April 13, to keynote the annual Legacy Dinner.
“The legacy of the 2010 election was Republican politicians across the country — and right here in Ohio — taking advantage of their control of the redistricting process to draw outrageously gerrymandered maps and effectively rig the system for the next decade,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “Redistricting reform has taken on a new urgency with national Democrats, and it’s been a big issue over the past few months at the Ohio Statehouse. That’s why we wanted to bring Attorney General Eric Holder, who is leading the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, to the Buckeye State to rally Ohio Democrats.
“We’re thrilled that the NDRC is planning to focus on Ohio in 2018 — including the races for secretary of state and auditor, which are the only two down-ballot races the organization has announced as targets, as well as critical races for the state House and Senate.”
The National Democratic Redistricting Committee is the first-ever strategic hub for a comprehensive redistricting strategy. With the support of former President Barack Obama, as well as key leaders around the country, the NDRC is attacking this problem from every angle to ensure the next round of redistricting is fair and that maps reflect the will of the voters.
Again, the dinner will be Friday, April 13, at the Hyatt Regency Columbus, 350 N. High St., Columbus with the exact time still to be determined.
