In the last Primary of 2020, Sen. Chris Coons wins against a Socialist challenger

Sen. Coons turns back left-wing challenge, wins Democratic nomination in Delaware

WILMINGTON, Del. ó Delaware Sen. Christopher A. Coons fended off a left-wing challenge Tuesday, defeating activist Jessica Scarane to win the Democratic nomination for a second full term.

Coons, elected in 2010 to the seat once held by former vice president Joe Biden, has cut a moderate profile in Washington ó one that Scarane, a digital strategist and member of Democratic Socialists of America, ran hard against. She endorsed Medicare-for-all and a Green New Deal, suggesting that a suburb-heavy state that has trended toward Democrats could have more liberal representation in Washington.

That message hit a wall with Delaware's Democrats, and Coons outspent Scarane while securing the endorsement of the elected members of his party as well as a strong endorsement from Biden. Coons also said he wouldn't side with Republicans who would block a potential Biden agenda if Democrats won control of the Senate in November. He secured 74 percent of vote to Scarane's 26 percent, with 83 percent of precincts reporting.
