WASHINGTON — Delaware Democrats flipped two seats from red to blue in the state Senate, winning a supermajority in both chambers of the Delaware General Assembly. Voters in the state overwhelmingly endorsed Democrats’ strong record of success and their agenda for moving Delaware forward.
“Under the proven leadership of our amazing Democratic legislators, Delaware has made historic progress,” said Jessica Post, Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee president. “Delaware has been on the forefront of fighting for LGBTQ rights, commonsense gun reform, and expanding voting rights. I can’t wait to see how Delaware Democrats continue to move their state forward and provide a model of progress for the rest of the nation.”
Among the winning candidates is state Senator-elect Sarah McBride (SD-1), who will be the first openly transgender person to serve in any state Senate and the highest ranking transgender official in the nation.
"I am so proud of state Senator-elect Sarah McBride for her historic victory,” added Post. “Delaware is a national leader in protections for the LGBTQ community, and I know Democrats in the state will make even more progress on issues important to Delawareans.”
