Marguerite S. Willis hosts former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder during his recent trip to South Carolina
On June 13, 2019, former Attorney General Eric Holder visited South Carolina and Nexsen Pruet as part of his tour of early primary states to discuss gerrymandered political districts and the plans of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, of which he is President, to address this fundamental unfairness. Marguerite Willis hosted Holder, the S.C. Democratic Party and guests in Nexsen Pruet's Charleston, South Carolina office.
"It was an honor to have General Holder with us," said Willis, who introduced Holder at the event. "Not only was he the first African American Attorney General in our nation's history, but he also continues to break barriers with his fight against gerrymandering."
Holder, a Partner with Washington, D.C.'s Covington & Burling, also spoke warmly about the working relationship between his firm and Nexsen Pruet.
“We want you all to make sure that people who are running for president are focusing on these issues of fair redistricting, gerrymandering and making sure that we have a fair census,” said Holder, during the report from VICE News.
