Delaware Elections

2024 Governor Cattle Call

New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer confirmed last week that he’s interested in running to succeed his fellow Democrat, termed-out Gov. John Carney, though he didn’t say when he’d decide. That was not actually a secret, as Meyer has been laying the groundwork for some time, and his website says “Meyer for Delaware.”

Meyer, who also cannot seek re-election to his current post in 2024 as he is himself term-limited, told the News Journal that he had the “seeds of the campaign,” which he feels is going well. Meyer leads a county that cast about 60% of the votes in last year’s party primary, so that gives him a sizable base of support, though, of course, he won’t get all those 60%.

Who are the other candidates who may run?

  • Lt. Governor Bethany Hall Long
  • Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester
  • Senate Majority Leader Bryan Townsend
  • Insurance Commissioner Trinidad Navarro
  • Attorney General Kathy Jennings
  • House Majority Leader Valerie Longhurst

Indicate who you would prefer in the comments, or suggest other potential candidates.

Delaware politics from a liberal, progressive and Democratic perspective. Keep Delaware Blue.
