Former Attorney General Eric Holder will help Democrats reshape their party and gain more control as chairman of a new committee.
Holder said Monday he will lead the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, according to The Huffington Post.
The "unprecedented new effort . . . will set priorities for investing in races for governor, state legislative and other key down-ballot races," Holder said, per the Post.
"It's also a cause that President Obama hopes to embrace when he leaves office."
Holder served as attorney general from 2009-2015. The 65-year-old said Democrats "need a comprehensive approach" to all races, from school boards and other local positions all the way up.
