They’re crawling out from under their rock looking for power and money now.
Political newcomer carries antiestablishment fight to Carper
Kerri Evelyn Harris, whose resume includes loading giant Air Force cargo planes, frying chicken at a convenience store chain and working as an auto body mechanic, is seeking in Thursday’s Democratic primary to unseat three-term incumbent U.S. Sen. Tom Carper, one of the most successful politicians in Delaware history.
Carper, undefeated since 1976 when he was first elected state treasurer, is taking it in stride.
“It’s not like I’ve never been primaried before,” said Carper, who served five terms in the U.S. House and two as governor before being elected to the Senate in 2000.
