WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Attorney General Eric Holder says he’s not running for president in 2020.

Holder, a Democrat, said in a Monday opinion piece in The Washington Post that he’ll focus on redistricting, the process of reconfiguring electoral districts.

Holder served under President Barack Obama and is chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which has sued states over voting rights issues and legislative redistricting.

Holder did not say which of the Democratic presidential candidates he might endorse but said there are many “good options.” He said candidates must focus on addressing climate change, immigration and ensuring that a Democrat is elected president in 2020.

Holder said it’s important to make sure the election is “free from foreign interference,” a reference to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

    Eric thank you for not jumping in the race. Hopefully Biden, Sanders and numerous others will take notes (Biden please don’t get in the race, and Bernie please get out). I’m SMH wondering why half of the people are even in the race. Bernie has lots of supporters but they will split the ticket. It must be nice to have people that are willing to give, and waste millions of $$ to people we never heard of (that will be able to successfully carry a Democratic ticket) Kamala 2020!!
