SCOTUSblog on camera: Edward Blum (Part one)

A passion for advocacy and the founding of the Project on Fair Representation; the lessons learned from an unsuccessful bid for the 18th Congressional District in Houston; discovering the courts to fight gerrymandered voting districts; and developing Bush v. Vera – his first case and a Supreme Court win.

In this five-part interview, Edward Blum — Visiting Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and Founder and President of the Project on Fair Representation — discusses his background, running for Congress, and moving from public finance to political advocacy to Supreme Court litigation; the meeting of race, ethnicity and religion; the desire to “make big law” and how to read Supreme Court signals; and success building cases from the ground up — from Bush v. VeraNAMUDNO v. Holder, and Shelby County v. Holder to Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin and beyond — with “people of good will.” (Fabrizio di Piazza)
