Beau Biden says he plans to run for governor in Delaware

(CNN) – Beau Biden said Thursday he won't seek re-election this year as Delaware attorney general and plans instead to run for governor in 2016.

"Over the past few months, as I've been planning to run for reelection, I have also been giving a great deal of thought to running for Governor in 2016," he said in a statement. "What started as a thought-a very persistent thought-has now become a course of action that I wish to pursue."

Gov. Jack Markell, a Democrat, signed the bill following a 12-9 vote in the State Senate passing the measure. The State House approved the bill in April.

Markell wins re-election as Delaware governor

(CNN) - CNN has projected Democratic Governor Jack Markell will be serving a second term as governor of Delaware, beating his Republican opponent Jeff Cragg.

Delaware has become an increasingly reliable Democratic state and with the defeat of former Rep. Mike Castle in the 2010 U.S. Senate primary, the state now has no Republicans in statewide elected office. Cragg, a small business owner from Wilmington was unlikely to change the GOP's fortunes, especially in a presidential election year with Vice President Joe Biden, a Delaware native, on the Democratic ticket.

Christine O'Donnell considering another Senate bid

(CNN) – Christine O'Donnell, the tea party favorite whose unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate in 2010 was punctuated by a television ad proclaiming "I am not a witch," says she's considering another run to represent Delaware in 2014.

"I think I owe that to my supporters, to at least consider a run," O'Donnell told Delaware Online. "People sacrificed. Not only came out of their comfort zone – sacrificed to work hard in order to win the primary. And I think that I owe it to them to give it every consideration."
