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.

    The Republicans did themselves in in Delaware. They moved away from the moderation of Sen. Castle and right into the arms of the far right. The Senate lost a good man.
