REPORT: Holder Admits ‘Blue Wave’ Might Not ‘Reach the Shore’


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FreeBeacon:

Former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder spoke in New Hampshire on Friday where he seemed to throw cold water on the idea of a coming “blue wave” this election cycle.

Holder, who has considered mounting a campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, was the keynote speaker at the “Politics & Eggs” series hosted by the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at St. Anselm College. The event, convening business leaders and grassroots activists, has long been a staple for aspiring presidential candidates seeking to introduce themselves to the New Hampshire electorate, which, following the Iowa caucuses, casts its primary ballots before any other state.

While discussing his work as chair of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC) – a D.C. based political advocacy group dedicated to “enacting a comprehensive, multi-cycle” Democratic Party redistricting strategy – Holder asserted a “blue wave” was imminent but added that it might not result in legislative victories.

The article goes on to state the following:

The former attorney general claimed that gerrymandering, the process by which the boundaries of legislative districts are drawn by the party in power, could serve to thwart the “blue wave.”

“You know, we talk about this blue wave,” Holder said. “I think there’s going to be a blue wave, but I think the Democrats should understand that blue wave is going to be running headlong into this gerrymandered system.”

“The question is whether or not that blue wave will actually reach the shore,” he added.
