Well, Vernon Jones (D-GA) just put a huge target on his back. He announced his endorsement of Donald J. Trump for president.
I’m a Georgia State Representative and lifelong Democrat. But in this election, I’ll be casting my vote for @realdonaldtrump.

Today, I’ve announced my support and endorsement of Donald J. Trump’s campaign reelection.
I didn’t leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me.
But one would say now, why would a black man support Donald Trump? Well, I would reverse that. Why wouldn’t a black man endorse Trump?
Isn’t he the president that ushered in the lowest unemployment rate among blacks before the pandemic crisis? Isn’t he the president that signed the criminal justice reform act? And, finally, isn’t he the president that overwhelmingly supported financially historical black colleges…? I 100% support Donald Trump.
He even hashtagged his tweet #MAGA and #WalkAway!
Now that he has betrayed his party, although not his constituents or conscience, he is being targeted for defeat.
Fair Fight, a group supported by failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate and aspiring vice president Stacey Abrams, will lead the charge against Jones.
An organization purportedly formed by Stacey Abrams to help disenfranchised minority voters said it will target a Democrat who endorsed President Donald Trump.
A spokesman for Fair Fight on Wednesday confirmed that the group will work to oust Democratic Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones from office after he formally endorsed Trump’s re-election campaign. Fair Fight will be supporting Rhonda Taylor, who is challenging Jones in the Democratic primary.
“No supporter of a racist president who is actively trying to suppress the votes of eligible Americans will receive the backing of Fair Fight,” Fair Fight spokesman Seth Bringman told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
I don’t know about you, but I am so tired of the accusation of Trump being a racist. There is no legitimate evidence of this allegation ever given. Repeatedly saying it does not make it so.
All evidence supports that President Trump is decidedly not racist. Representative Jones laid some of that evidence out. Why would a black man support a racist?
The racist label on President Trump is simply used as a tool (hammer) to bully the black vote. I’m hoping that Vernon Jones wins a resounding victory in his reelection bid.
