DOVER, Del. (AP) - The six Democrats vying for their party's nomination to fill Delaware's vacant lieutenant governor's seat are introducing themselves to votes and outlining their platforms.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Republican state Del. Glenn Davis is running for lieutenant governor in Virginia.

The tech entrepreneur and former Virginia Beach city councilman announced Thursday he's running to "turnaround" the state's economy.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports Davis will make improving Virginia's business climate a centerpiece of the second-term delegate's campaign.

Officials say that Brown will make the announcement Friday during a picnic at Prince George's Community College.

The lieutenant governor is also expected to make stops in Frederick, Montgomery County and Baltimore on Saturday.

Brown, a Democrat, has served as the lieutenant governor of the state since 2006 alongside of Gov. Martin O'Malley.

Prior to assuming the post of lieutenant governor, Brown represented Prince George's County for two terms in the Maryland House of Delegates, rising to the position of majority whip.
