Washington, D.C. — Tonight, Eric H. Holder, Jr., the 82nd Attorney General of the United States and Chair of National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), released the following statement on the results in Wisconsin’s special elections:
“I want to congratulate Caleb Frostman for winning a seat in the Wisconsin State Senate. Scott Walker and his Republican allies gerrymandered this district for their own partisan benefit, but the citizens of Wisconsin are clearly speaking out this year to demand a state government that better represents their values. The National Democratic Redistricting Committee is committed to keeping up the fight so that when new maps are drawn in 2021, Democrats are in place to fight for fairness.”
Wisconsin is one of NDRC’s Electoral Targets for 2018.
