Andy Staton


Money is pouring into Delaware’s new 6th district in the state Senate.

The two party candidates Democrat Andy Staton and Republican Ernie Lopez have spent $140-thosuand into the campaign to represent a district that includes cities ranging from Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach to Lewes and Milton.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that both have cash on hand after raising nearly $250-thousand from at least 641 individual donors and 20 political action committees.

Staton is the best funded candidate picking up $155-thousand with $81-thousand on hand.

State of Delaware

The explosion in the come-here population could be the key to who wins the 6th state Senate seat in Delaware.

The district covers the coastal resorts like Dewey Beach, Rehoboth Beach and Lewes as well as inland towns like Milton and Harbeson.

A Wilmington News Journal analysis finds that voters are far different than the rest of Sussex County.

It has more retires, fewer farmers and mostly wealthier households.
