2018 Senate Candidate Survey

The Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence (DeCAGV) is a statewide organization focused on preventing gun violence by promoting sensible gun laws and addressing the root causes of gun violence. As such, we have created a survey about issues related to gun violence prevention in Delaware and at the federal level. The responses from the candidates running for Senate serve as an educational reference for Delaware voters in the 2018 elections.  Access the hyperlinks to read the candidates’ longer answers.
