Democrats are serving notice that they will make their strongest effort to win Delaware’s at-large U.S. House seat since long-popular Republican Rep. Michael N. Castle first won it in 1992.

John Carney , the state’s former lieutenant governor and competitive contender for the 2008 Democratic nomination for governor, announced Wednesday that he will seek Delaware’s only House seat.  

Carney promised to be “a strong, independent voice in Congress for all Delawareans” who will work with the Obama administration “to get our economy moving again and to address the significant challenges we face as a country.”
