The group was formed, in part, by Obama’s displeasure with the house Republican majority during part of his presidency, and claims that gerrymandering, both parties, has led to “devastating” policy.

“These gerrymandered districts have devastating political consequences, leads to some of the most right-wing of the legislation that stand up for decades, both in Congress and at the state level, including attacks on the health of women, suppressing the vote for people of color, failing to deal with climate change, and refused, to the epidemic of gun violence,” the group-is site. have had “These measures do not reflect the majority of voters, but because the Republicans manipulated the system to their favor, the voters are limited in their ability to do something about it.”

NDRC reports raise a total of $11 million in the last year, between the numerous persons, the NDRC, the National Redistricting Foundation and the National Redistricting Action Fund. Holder said the group has a goal of raising $30 million in 2018.
