Governor Jack Markell gave high praise to his former political rival congressman John Carney adding that the Delaware Democrat would make a terrific gubernatorial candidate next year.
The semi-endorsement came through a spokesman for the governor this past weekend.
Carney has not indicated if he will make a run for the governorship.
Markell beat Carney in the 2008 gubernatorial primary.
Meanwhile, Carper worked for then Governor Tom Carper during the mid-1990’s.
Markell will leave office next year after his two term limit is up.
