At their na­tion­al con­ven­tion Sat­urday, Delaware Re­pub­lic­ans en­dorsed state Sen. Colin Bonini (R) for gov­ernor over polit­ic­al new­comer Lacey Laf­ferty (R). “Des­pite en­dors­ing him, the party will not spend re­sources” to boost Bonini. (Delaware State News)

The win­ner of their Sept. 13 primary will face Rep. John Car­ney (D) in Novem­ber.

SPEAK­ING OUT. The ed­it­or­i­al board of the Wilm­ing­ton News-Journ­al cri­ti­cized Delaware Re­pub­lic­ans for hav­ing little polit­ic­al clout in the state. The pub­lic­a­tion wrote, “As of now, Delaware Demo­crats aren’t truly be­ing chal­lenged to do more or think dif­fer­ently. … All we are en­dors­ing at this point in time is a lively, dy­nam­ic and in­tel­li­gent battle for the state’s highest of­fice. No elec­tion should be a for­gone con­clu­sion.” (Wilm­ing­ton News-Journ­al)
