Delaware Senate Incumbent Draws Fire From Independent Candidate

Jul 17, 2012

The Senate race in Delaware has just gotten more interesting with the entrance of Alex Pires as an Independent Party candidate.

He quickly launched a new line of attack questioning the health of incumbent Senator Tom Carper.

Pires said that the Delaware Democrat’s health is “the most important issue” in the race and called on Carper to release the results of his most recent physical.

The Carper camp fired back with campaign manager John Collins noting that the Senator has never missed a day of work because of illness in over 30 years.

He told the Wilmington News Journal, “There’s no confusion here about whether or not he has a serious health issue – he does not.”
