Eric Holder visits Five Points advocating for anti-gerrymandering measures in Colorado
Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder fired up Five Points community members on Thursday as he stumped for the state’s Democratic ticket and urged voters to support two anti-gerrymandering measures.
Holder, the country’s first African-American U.S. attorney general and a potential 2020 presidential candidate, spoke to a full house at Brother Jeff’s Cultural Center in the historically black neighborhood.
The crowd on Thursday included several African-American and Latino elected officials including state Rep. Janet Buckner, state Rep. Leslie Herod, state Sen. Rhonda Fields, state Rep. Joe Salazar, and Denver City Councilmen Albus Brooks and Councilman Paul D. Lopez.
