A Democrat has thrown his hat in the ring to become Delaware’s next  Attorney General.

Former Delaware Department of Justice Chief of Staff Tim Mullaney has formally announced his candidacy.

Current AG Matt Denn announced in August he will not be running for re-election in next year, creating an open race for the job.

In addition to working in Delaware's Department of Justice, Mullaney was a U.S. Marshal for Delaware from 1994 to 2002. He's also held posts with New Castle County and the city of Dover.



“Under my proven leadership, the Department of Justice will help build stronger and safer communities by helping troubled youths turn their lives around before they become adult criminals, keep our children safe from predators, stand up for the victims of crime and build public trust in the legal system,"  said Mullaney in a statement. "I am running to help those who need it most. I have a lifetime of public service protecting those who cannot protect themselves.


Mullaney is currently the Director of Labor Services for the National Fraternal Order of Police.

He says he looks forward to sharing his vision for the Attorney General’s Office with Delawareans all over the state.
