Candidate Conversations: State Attorney General candidate Bernard Pepukayi

Sep 21, 2018

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, Republican Bernard Pepukayi.


Pepukayi, a long-time Democrat, is switching parties to run for the GOP, which nominated him after Peggy Marshall Thomas dropped out of the race in mid August.

Pepukayi has served as a Delaware Family Court Commissioner, New Castle County Attorney and Legal Counsel for former Democratic Gov. Ruth Ann Minner.

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.
