I have previously posted, however sparsely, about why the person selected to live in the Governor’s Mansion in Dover is relevant to this blog. Namely, because in Delaware the Governor appoints all the judges and those appointments influence the quality of the corporate jurisprudence summarized on these pages. Here is an update on the gubernatorial race by political commentator Celia Cohen who predicts quite reasonably that the race will be over after the primary on Sept. 9. This is so, she safely states, because the man rumored to be the Republican candidate just "dropped out" of the race before he officially declared, leaving the Republicans flat-footed and without a candidate at a rather late point in the race. (Early on–say more than 2 years ago–I publicly declared my support for current Lt. Gov. John Carney, who I believe for many reasons is the best candidate for the job.)
