DeBerry lost to Harold Ford Sr. in 1994 and gets a rematch of sorts, running against Ford's son. The conservative DeBerry advocates term limits, a "zero-tolerance stance" on violent crime and a $500-per-child tax credit. This is good conservatism for the Ninth, but in a district where per-capita income is only $11,296, bootstraps capitalism may be a hard sell.
