Holder won’t rule out presidential run
“We’ll see,” Holder said in response to a question about whether he could run for the White House.
Holder said he’s focused on his work at the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), but suggested he could choose to run for office again.
“I’ll see. I’m focused on the NDRC at this point,” he said.
“But I think I’ll make a decision at the end of this issue as to whether or not there is another chapter in my government service.”
But his tenure also won him serious criticisms on the right. Congress voted to hold him in contempt after a Justice Department program lost track of guns that ultimately fell into the hands of Mexican gangs.
Conservatives also accused his department of specifically targeting conservative groups with challenges to their tax-exempt status.
