Cragg files for Governor
Delaware businessman Jeff Cragg officially filed his candidacy for Governor July 10 at the Commissioner of Election’s Office in Dover. Cragg will face off against incumbent Democrat Gov. Jack Markell in the Tuesday, Nov. 6, general election.
Cragg won the endorsement of the Republican Party of Delaware at its annual convention in April in Rehoboth Beach.
Speaking to supporters July 10, Cragg said, “While families and individuals are cutting back, working longer hours and making hard sacrifices, our government continues to grow and expand at the expense of the private sector. The time has come to reign in this reckless spending and put more money back into your pockets. This is why I’m running for Governor, and with your help I will go to Dover and create an environment where business can grow and restore our economic prosperity.”

Carper said, “Today’s ruling removes much of the uncertainty surrounding the law by reaffirming its constitutionality. We should now move forward together and focus on implementing this law to the best of our ability, and where it needs improvement, make it better. Millions of Americans, including thousands of Delawareans, are already benefiting from this law. For example, three million young adults still have health insurance coverage through their parents’ plan; 17 million children with pre-existing conditions are no longer denied coverage; and more than five million seniors have saved $4 billion on their prescription drugs. And by 2014, more of the law’s provisions will go into effect, expanding access to quality, affordable health care for millions of uninsured Americans who currently lack it.”
