Since leaving the White House for good in January, former President Barack Obama has taken a break from politics. But after luxurious vacations and yachting with celebrities, he’s ready to make his political comeback.
On Thursday July 13th, Obama will be attending a swanky fundraiser at a private Washington D.C. residence. The event is hosted by his former Attorney General Eric Holder, and attended by top Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Holder is a controversial figure in Obama’s political career, as the House voted to hold him in contempt of Congress.
He became the first attorney general to ever be held in criminal attempt after Obama ordered Holder not to release documents relating to Operation Fast & Furious, in which the U.S. government lost an estimated 1,400 weapons in Mexico.
Two of the weapons resurfaced at the murder scene of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010, proving that these weapons had fallen into the wrong hands.

To no surprise, the focus of Obama’s upcoming appearance is finding ways to land more Democrats in Washington, returning it to the liberal environment that once existed under his leadership.
The event will serve as a fundraiser funneling money into the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, who’s goal is to reorganize election maps to ensure more Dem victories.
Having a major name like Obama on the ticket is exactly what holder needs to attract the wealthy desperate to rub elbows with the former president.

“The National Democratic Redistricting Committee is proud to have the support of President Obama as we work to undo gerrymandering and create fairer representation in our democracy,” Holder told Politico.
Other than criticizing President Donald Trump in speeches and doing minor campaigning for Tom Perez’s bid for chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Obama has remained quiet.
But with the 2018 elections creeping up, it’s no surprise that he will get back in the spotlight, doing everything he can to turn around the Democratic party which has been in turmoil since his departure.
