Barack Obama returns to politics to address 2020 electoral map


As we inch ever closer to the 2020 presidential election, a wide gamut of auxiliary political figures are sure to emerge from the woodwork in order to impose themselves on the electorate.

This is truer than ever in 2019, as Twitter and other social media channels allow direct voter access to anyone with a smartphone and a blue checkmark – regardless of their relevance to the current field of candidates.  For example, 2016 runner-up Hillary Clinton has used the platform to inject her own opinions into the coming election, often in direct opposition to President Donald Trump.

Today it was announced that another former occupant of the White House is preparing to make a push to promote progressives in the 2020 race, this time through efforts to redistrict the electoral maps that flummoxed the aforementioned Clinton last go-round.

The initiative, Redistricting U, will send activists to provide free training and tools to volunteers involved in redistricting efforts and guide groups on how to “be leaders in the movement for fair maps.”

“Training is at the heart of organizing. It’s why I’ve always made it a priority – from my 2008 campaign until now,” Obama wrote in a tweet announcing Redistricting U, which is part of the All On The Line campaign.

In February, Obama’s Organizing For Action and former Attorney General Eric Holder’s National Redistricting Action Fund joined forces to create the All On The Line campaign — aimed at thwarting the use of so-called gerrymandering across the country.

The former President continued:

“The movement for fair maps will determine the course of progress on every issue we care about for the next decade,” Obama said. “And we can’t wait to begin organizing when the redistricting process starts in 2021. We need to build this movement from the ground up – right now.”

Obama reiterated that his commitment to remapping began in 2008, likely to cast aside criticism of the timing of the initiative.
