Democratic Senator Coons Wins Re-election in Delaware

Delaware Democrat Chris Coons has been re-elected to the U.S. Senate, beating back a challenge from Republican businessman Kevin Wade.

This year's Senate race in Delaware was a foregone conclusion for many political observers and did not figure into the national battle between Democrats and Republicans for control of the Senate.

Wade faced huge disadvantages in fundraising and voter registration numbers against Coons, who served as chief executive of the largest county in heavily Democratic Delaware before he was elected to the Senate.
