BY: Wolfgang von Baumgart, Staff Writer Delaware's Republican primary US Senate candidates, Rob Arlett and Gene Truono discussed issues last night at the Georgetown CHEER Center in an event sponsored by the Sussex County GOP, moderated by WGMD 92.7 FM morning talk show host, Mike Bradley. “Tom Carper is the major reason why we need term limits.

Bernie Sanders Comments on WV Win

Heavy Primary Schedule for DE Dems

There are a lot of primaries on tap this year for the Democratic Party of Delaware.  Take a look at the latest filed candidates list provided by the Office of the State Commisioner of Elections.

Mullen of Somewhere-in-RD9, DE. It appears it’s going to be a busy, busy primary season for Democrats, indeed!
