CNA Staff, Nov 4, 2020 / 11:30 am (CNA).- Longtime Tennessee state representative, civil rights champion, and pro-life Democrat John DeBerry lost his reelection bid on Tuesday evening. DeBerry was standing as an independent after he was removed from the Democratic primary ballot earlier this year, in part due to his pro-life views.
Torrey Harris, 29, overwhelmingly won the election in House District 90, garnering 77% of the vote to DeBerry’s 23%. Harris is a community organizer who previously lost to DeBerry in the 2018 primary. House District 90 is located in Memphis.
