So much for the "big tent".
This is a man I could certainly vote for - which is likely why he was kicked out of the Party.
Do read the entire thing.

Ousted by Democrats, longtime lawmaker and minister fights for his political life
Anti-abortion preacher seeks his 14th two-year term in the Tennessee General Assembly — this time as an independent.

SNIP:
As a teen, longtime Tennessee state Rep. John DeBerry Jr. integrated an all-White high school and witnessed civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr.’s final speech before his 1968 assassination.

To supporters, DeBerry — a 69-year-old Black preacher from Memphis — is a man of high integrity and strong moral convictions based on his Christian faith.

But to opponents, including Planned Parenthood, the LGBTQ Victory Fund and the Tennessee Democratic Party’s executive committee, the 13-term incumbent is an out-of-touch relic. In their view, DeBerry’s conservative positions on issues such as abortion, gay rights and school choice make him unfit to remain in office.

This is not a sign of confidence. This is the Biden campaign knowing they have to paint Trump as a racist to try to prevent the double-digit percentage of black voters for Trump from happening. Because if 10-20% of AAs vote for Trump, and 10% stay home and/or vote for Kanye... Well, you've got a second Trump term.

Methinks BOTH campaigns have internal polling that has Trump with at least 15% cross-over AA votes, ESPECIALLY in battleground/swing states. Hence, "fine people..." is resurrected.
