Delaware Gov. Carney Wins Second Term
On November 3, voters reelected incumbent John Carney to a second term as Governor of Delaware, defeating Republican challenger Julianne Murray.
During the campaign, Gov. Carney received criticism from the opposing party on his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This included a public mask mandate, as well as business shutdowns.
The election was expected to show whether Delaware voters approved of his administration’s handling of the pandemic.
Gov. Carney is constitutionally limited to two terms and may not seek another term in 2024.
