“The Politics & Eggs series is a forum for presidential candidates, political leaders, and other political analysts and commentators as they visit New Hampshire, home of the nation’s first presidential primaries,” the press release said.
The announcement follows Holder’s remark Tuesday night that he is “thinking about” running for President, adding, “I have not made any decisions on it.” Holder continued that he believes “our democracy is under attack. If you look at the question of gerrymandering, the question of voter suppression,” he noted, “a lot of these things are falling by the wayside.”
