The man who gerrymandered America

Hosted by ,

President Obama will soon have plenty of time to fill. He’s revealed one thing he plans to focus on after leaving office - redistricting. Specifically, he and former Attorney General Eric Holder are looking to undo the map that some say has all but secured Republican domination in the House of Representatives at least through the 2020 election. The Republican strategist who helped lead the redistricting effort after 2008 is skeptical that President Obama can succeed.
