Eric Holder: Will Decide in 2019 About 2020 Presidential Run

Eric Holder, who was attorney general during the Barack Obama administration, said that he will decide in 2019 on whether he will run for president in 2020.

“What I’ve said is that I’d make a determination sometime early next year. My focus, really, now, is on 2018,” Holder said Monday on CBS’ “Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”

Holder said he was focusing on helping Democrats take back majorities in the House and Senate and to gain success at the state level.

The former attorney general said there was a “real problem with partisan gerrymandering,” noting that redistricting is scheduled for 2021.

Because of that, Holder said he wants “to make sure we elect as many people as possible at the governor level, at the state legislature level, that when 2021 comes, we have a fair redistricting process.”

Holder has been a frequent critic of President Donald Trump. In June, Holder criticized Trump’s use of the presidential pardon, saying he was using it on people who were unworthy.
