14th RD Dems to Host
Sen. Sarah McBride on Tuesday, Feb. 13
Rehoboth Beach, Del., Feb. 6, 2024 – Sen. Sarah McBride, D-Wilmington, a Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress, will address the next meeting of the 14th Representative District Democratic Committee Feb. 13. As part of the 14th RD’s series featuring Democratic candidates in the 2024 election, McBride will discuss her background and campaign agenda addressing gun violence, access to abortion and climate change.
A state senator representing the first district, McBride has long been considered a rising star in Delaware politics. She worked for former Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and the late Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, and her track record in the state senate includes passage of legislation that provides paid family and medical leave.
Now running to succeed fellow Democrat Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester, McBride has gained national attention for her historic bid to become the first openly transgender person to serve in the U.S. House.
The program will begin at 5 p.m. with a Dutch-treat dinner at Iron Hill Brewery, on Route 1 north of Rehoboth Beach, followed by McBride’s remarks at 6 p.m., and committee business at 6:30. The 14th RD committee represents Democrats who live in the Lewes, Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach communities.
All registered Democrats are welcome to participate in 14th RD meetings. Those planning to attend the rare Tuesday meeting should RSVP by Monday, February 12, to email@example.com. For further information, go to 14thRDDelDems.com.
The Eastern Sussex Democrats have announced their first endorsements for the upcoming Democratic primary and the November general election. The members present at the organization’s February 7th meeting unanimously voted to endorse State Senator Russ Huxtable for State Senate District 6, State Representative Stell Parker-Selby for Representative District 20, and Dana Paskins for Sussex County Council District 3.
First elected to the State Senate in 2022, Huxtable has proven himself to be a dedicated and effective legislator, authoring and sponsoring important legislation to prohibit commercial development in Cape Henlopen State Park as well as addressing many other critical issues.
Stell Parker-Selby was elected to the 20th Representative District seat in 2022 in one of only two races that flipped a traditionally Republican seat to Democratic control, the other being Huxtable’s State Senate bid. Parker-Selby has well established roots in the area and has been an outstanding representative for the interests of her constituents.
Dana Paskins, a retired US Air Force officer who grew up in Sussex County, will bring a fresh and progressive voice to a County Council that too often seems to favor breakneck development over preserving the very special quality of life in Sussex County.
“All three of these candidates represent what is best about the Democratic Party in Delaware,” said Kathy Hughes, President of ESD. “They are dedicated to ensuring that everyone in Sussex County can enjoy everything that makes life here so special. We are proud to endorse these three Democratic candidates, and we look forward to supporting their campaigns.”
The 151st session of Delaware’s General Assembly, led in the House by the the 14th District’s own Rep. Pete Schwartzkopf, had one of the most productive legislative sessions in recent memory.
