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.
