Could this be the biggest political story of the upcoming 2018 election cycle?

Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder has decided to move forward with plans to retake statehouses and governorships nationwide.

His new group, called the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, aims to redraw election maps to favor Democrats.

Holder himself was happy to explain their plans to CNN:

As Democrats and grassroots activists refocus their efforts on state and local elections, one thing is abundantly clear: if we want to fix our broken political system, we need to start by fixing the way we draw electoral maps. That fight starts now,

Republican governors currently control a historic majority of 34 governorships, something Democrats would clearly like to change.
