Outcomes of the Delaware election are listed below. Most notably, President Pro Tempore Patricia Blevins was unseated by Republican Anthony Delcollo. Delcollo is an Associate Attorney with Cooch and Taylor in Wilmington, a member of Associated Builders and Contractors and Delaware Contractor’s Association, and is the Director of Delaware State Sportsman’s Association.
A special session will take place in February or March to fill Bethany Hall Long’s Senate seat. With the Republican’s picking up a seat with Delcollo’s victory, this race will decide which party controls the State Senate.
*These results are unofficial and need to be certified by the Department of Elections.
