Sept 6 - Delaware!

I'm about to descend into NY state primary madness, but before I do, there are a couple of other state primaries left. This week, we have Delaware! A very blue state so it's not getting a lot of attention, but that just means the primary is all the more important!


DE has a Senate seat up, and an At-Large House seat, but both are held by Democrats who are perfectly good, so no real primaries there.


At the state level though, there is a lot happening. DE is electing a new Attorney General, who would have serious power over criminal justice reform in the state. Real Justice PAC has endorsed Chris Johnson, an attorney and former gubernatorial aide, as the best choice to lead on this important issue.

DE is also having an election for State Auditor. Kathleen Davies seems to be a well-qualified choice there.


In the state legislature, half of DE's Senate is up for re-election. The Dems hold a tiny 1-seat majority, so this is not a state to take for granted. There are active primaries in:

SD2 (East Wilmington): 4 Dems are running for this open Dem-held seat. THIS IS THE GENERAL!

SD3 (Wilmington): 2 Dems are running for this open Dem-held seat. THIS IS THE GENERAL!


All 41 House seats are up! Dems have a more solid majority there, but its still important to put up the best candidates possible. There are active primaries in:

HD1 (Wilmington): The Dem incumbent has a challenger

HD2 (Wilmington): The Dem incumbent has a challenger

HD3 (Wilmington): An open safe-Dem seat, THIS IS THE GENERAL! Emily's List has endorsed Sherry Dorsey Walker.

HD5 (Newark area): An open safe-Dem seat, THIS IS THE GENERAL! 4 people are running.

HD7 (Wilmington area): An open safe-Dem seat, THIS IS THE GENERAL! 5 people are running.

HD9 (Eastern coast south of Delaware city): 3 Dems are running to challenge the Republican incumbent.

HD12 (NW of Wilmington): 2 Dems are running to challenge the Republican incumbent.

HD16 (Wilmington): An open safe-Dem seat, THIS IS THE GENERAL! 3 people are running.

HD17 (New Castle): An open safe-Dem seat, THIS IS THE GENERAL! 3 people are running.

HD19 (Wilmington area): The Dem incumbent has a challenger.

HD22 (Spring Valley area): 2 Dems are running to try and flip this open seat!

HD31 (Dover): The Dem incumbent has a challenger.


Go Delaware go! #beavoter
