Wade Wins GOP Senate Primary in Delaware

NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Northern Delaware businessman Kevin Wade has won the state's Republican primary for U.S. Senate.
    
Wade's easy victory over 81-year-old Carl Smink on Tuesday advances him to a November contest against incumbent Democrat Chris Coons.
    
Wade is making his second Senate bid, having lost a 2012 race to incumbent Democrat Tom  Carper, Delaware's senior senator, with 29 percent of the vote.
    
As he was against Carper, Wade will be a decided underdog against Coons, who won a 2010 special election against tea party favorite Christine O'Donnell to fill the seat vacated by Joe Biden when he became vice president.
    
Coons had $3.1 million in the bank at the end of June. Wade, who didn't enter the race until early July, has raised only a few thousand dollars.
