Del. Democrats May Have Edge Over GOP

Posted:

 

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Voter registration numbers suggest that incumbent Democrats holding statewide and federal offices in Delaware have the edge on GOP challengers trying to unseat them Tuesday.

Of Delaware's, 632,000 registered voters, more than 300,000 are Democrats. Republicans number about 182,000 voters, and there are some 150,000 unaffiliated voters.
Gov.  Jack Markell, Lt. Gov. Matt Denn, Sen. Tom Carper and Congressman John Carney also have raised more money than their Republican challengers and are relying on Delaware's traditional Democratic power base to boost their re-election efforts.

But Republican candidates aren't conceding defeat.  Gubernatorial candidate Jeff Cragg says it's all about getting out the vote.

GOP congressional candidate Tom Kovach says Delaware needs balance in its congressional delegation, which for the first time since 1941 has all three members from the same party.

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
