Rather than a primary election and a general election, it looks like this year's Delaware gubernatorial race will feature a primary election and a perfunctory election. State Treasurer Jack Markell, a Democrat who squeaked to a 51%-49% victory in the primary, appears set to roar to victory in November. From Rasmussen Reports:
Democratic State Treasurer Jack Markell leads Judge Bill Lee 62% to 34% in the first Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of the race for Delaware's next governor.
The two men are campaigning to replace Democratic Governor Ruth Ann Minner, who is constitutionally barred from running for a third term. Markell is serving his third term as the state treasurer. Lee, who served as a judge in the state's superior court, lost the last gubernatorial election to Minner.
Markell is dominant among unaffiliated voters, 57% to 35%. He also leads 59% to 36% among men and 65% to 33% among women.
