Candidate Conversations: State Attorney General candidate Kathy Jennings

Delaware Public Media

This week, we continue bringing you our series of Candidate Conversations - part of Delaware Public Media’s 2018 Election coverage, and the Delaware Debates we are producing again this fall with the University of Delaware’s Center for Political Communication.

We are examining the race for State Attorney General– and in this interview, Democrat Kathy Jennings.

Kathy Jennings is running for elected office for the first time. Jennings has more than 20 years of experience in the state Department of Justice, including stints as state prosecutor and Chief Deputy Attorney General. She  prosecuted hundreds of cases, including serial killer Steve Pennell, who tortured and murdered five women in 1988.  Most recently, she served as New Castle County Chief Administrative Officer under County Executive Matt Meyer before resigning to run for state Attorney General.

We’ve reached out to all candidates who have filed to run in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate races, as well as the races for state Attorney General, State Auditor and State Treasurer,  and invited them to sit down with us at our studio on the campus of Delaware State University for an interview. 

Candidates in each race are being asked the same set of questions to allow you to get to know them and compare them. 

In addition to the interviews on The Green, the full interviews will be available to view at Delaware Public Media's website and the Delaware Debates website right through Election Day in November.
