By Kevin Spence kspence@capegazette.com With five weeks to go before the Sept. 9 primaries, few polls, if any, have been released that indi- cate a Democratic gubernatorial front-runner. The race between Lt. Gov. John Carney and State Treasurer Jack Markell seems to be tight - and costly - after Markell raised a record-breaking $1 million dol- lars this year. In 2004, Gov. Ruth Ann Min- ner raised more than $840,000 for her re-election campaign. With a total of $2.5 million in campaign funds, Markell has twice that of his opponent, says communications director Joe Ro- sky. At the end of 2007, Carney's campaign had about $1.4 million in its war chest, said Scott Mc- ConneU, press secretary for Car- ney. McConnell would not disclose total campaign funds to date, but he said he would by Tuesday, Aug. 12, when candidates are re- quired to file a 30-day campaign fundraising and spending report. "We're meeting all our fundraising goals and-we contin- ue to have a great deal of support with Delaware voters," said Mc- ConnelL In Sussex County, five of eight Democratic committee districts have endorsed Carney, he added. While Carney vows to use ex- perience gained from serving un- der Minner, at the same time, he is calling for education and healthcare reforms. A vote for State Treasurer Jack Markell, however, is a vote to completely overhaul the current administration.
