President Barack Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder has fueled speculation that he may be contesting for the number one seat, the presidential position according to PBS News Hour. He spokeat a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor in Washington D.C., Holder was asked if he would consider an attempt to garner the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential contest. His response, “We’ll see,” put Holder in the center of a large number of potential candidates for the Democrats.
These are some other political veterans who are still examining their chances are Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Kamala Harris (D-CA), and former Vice President Joe Biden, so Holder will have to weigh his chances against a fairly formidable group.
While Holder may or may not go for the big job, he is serious about considering a run for some form of elected office and says he’ll make a decision by year’s end.
In the meantime, the former Attorney General is keeping busy with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, a group dedicated to fighting the Republicans’ electoral advantage achieved through state-level gerrymandering by helping more local Democrats win in state legislative and gubernatorial races
