Primary Election In Delaware Today

/ WDAC

DOVER, DE (AP) – In a primary election battle in Delaware, voters are choosing between the state’s senior senator and an upstart challenger riding an anti-establishment wave within the Democratic Party. 71-year-old Sen. Tom Carper has never lost a race in his more than four decades in politics. His primary challenger is 38-year-old political newcomer Kerri Harris, who is trying to stage what would be one of the most shocking upsets in modern Delaware political history. Other statewide primaries to be decided today include Republican contests for U.S. Senate and U.S. House, and Democrat primaries for attorney general and state auditor. Seventeen legislative primaries also will be decided on the local level. Only Democrats and Republicans can vote in their respective primaries. Election Commissioner Elaine Manlove says she’s not seeing any unusual problems at the polls, which are open in Delaware until 8 p.m.

KERRI HARRIS
