Press Release

NEW CASTLE - Delaware Democratic Party Chair Betsy Maron has issued the following statement on State Senator Sarah McBride becoming the party's presumptive nominee for U.S. House.

"This election year has showcased the talent within the Delaware Democratic Party and there is no race that has underscored that more than the race for Congress. Eugene Young has run an energizing and positive campaign rooted in the values of the Democratic Party. He is a dedicated and compassionate leader, who is only beginning his public service in Delaware.

"With his announcement today, Delaware Democrats are proud to unite behind our candidate for Congress, Sarah McBride. Sarah has been a leader in the Delaware Democratic Party and a true changemaker as a State Senator. Sarah has garnered an incredible coalition of support in her campaign, including her Democratic colleagues in the state legislature and unions across our state.

"We look forward to working with her as she continues her steadfast commitment to Delaware and the values of the Democratic Party of Delaware. This fall we get to elect some of Delaware’s finest leaders up and down the ticket — together we can reelect President Joe Biden, and elect Lisa Blunt Rochester to the United States Senate and Sarah McBride to the United States House of Representatives. It’s time to make history, Delaware!"
