    Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder brought his fight against partisan gerrymandering to New Hampshire, saying in too many places, politicians are picking their voters instead of the other way around.

    Holder, who served in the Obama administration, spoke Friday at the "Politics and Eggs" forum at Saint Anselm College, a popular stop for potential presidential candidates.

    Holder current serves as the chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee.
