     Former President Obama and former US Attorney Holder are losers.  Former President Obama is getting ready to jump back into the political pool, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday.  Holder said he has been talking with Obama about different ways to help the new National Democratic Redistricting Committee, according to Politico. Obama asked Holder to be chairman of the group last year.  “He's ready to roll,” Holder told reporters at a briefing.

     Obama and other top Democrats are focusing efforts on state-level races and ending the reconfiguring of voting districts through the politically-laded process known as gerrymandering – a combined effort to end “Trump-ism” and help their party regain control of Congress and legislatures across the country.  Politico reported that the group seeks to direct resources into winning certain state elections, push ballot initiatives for nonpartisan district-drawing commissions and wage legal wars to existing maps.  By accomplishing their goals, the group hopes it would put Democrats at a better advantage in state legislatures and the House of Representatives.

     Holder said the fight will be more difficult with Jeff Sessions running the Justice Department. He added that the decision to throw out a challenge to voter laws in Texas was “disheartening.”

     Obama and Holder are hoping ot ignite Democrats - they will all lose.
