If he wins his primary today as expected, the former Ocean City mayor and current state delegate will face off against the same opponent he narrowly defeated in the 2006 delegate race: Republican Michael James.

Meanwhile in Delaware, all eyes are watching the battle to be the Republican contender for the U.S. Senate seat that Vice President Joe Biden vacated.
