Overview
Delaware was talked about as a battleground state, and the campaigns advertised and had staff in the state, but in the end the Gore-Lieberman ticket won with a comfortable plurality of 42,780 votes (13.06 percentage points).  In one of the most closely fought Senate races in the country, Gov. Thomas R. Carper (D) defeated incumbent Sen. William V. Roth Jr. (R), 55.5% to 43.7%.  In the gubernatorial race, Lt. Gov. Ruth Ann Minner (D) won by a wide margin over John M. Burris (R) to keep the seat in Democratic hands.
General Election Activity

 
Primary and Caucus Results
. Delaware Code (Title 15, Chapter 31, Section 3181) requires "a presidential primary election for all political parties shall be conducted on the Saturday next following the day on which the state of New Hampshire elects to conduct a presidential primary election."
. As provided by the Code, parties can opt out of the state-run primary.  The Delaware Republican State Committee did so in August 1999.  Delaware Republicans wanted to attract candidates' visits and resources, and most candidates were committed to respecting New Hampshire's seven day window, so the party ran its own primary on Feb. 8.  Democrats did not opt out; the Feb. 5 primary, which had no effect on the selection of delegates, cost the state $350,000.
