In this July 23, 2019, photo, auto repairman Terrance Holmes is interviewed in Detroit. When Barack Obama was on the ballot in 2008 and 2012, there was no question that Holmes would vote for the first black president. But as he helped fix cars at a repair shop on Detroit's west side, he recalled his ambivalence about the 2016 campaign. He hasn't paid much attention to the early Democratic primary and didn't know that two high-profile black candidates are running. But he vowed to help vote President Donald Trump out of office in 2020, regardless of which Democrat emerges as his challenger. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
