They were political rivals in 2008. Now Gov. Jack Markell is all but endorsing Congressman John Carney to succeed him as Delaware’s governor.
Over the weekend, Markell praised Carney’s qualifications and said through a spokesman on Monday that Carney would make a “terrific candidate should he decide to run” next year.
Dear John Carney the reason you lost the primary race for governor against Jack Markell was because you were Governor Minner’s pool-boy. You stayed in her shadow way too long! You were the party’s choice and Markell took you to primary! Taking his endorsement would make you his lap-dog!
John, I am here to tell you, Markell has caused severe damage to Delaware’s public school system and I am not taking about charter schools. Markell sold out to Wall Street and Washington! Markell has weakened local control to the extent PTA’s voice doesn’t matter re: the testing opt-out. Markell signs on to all the Wall Street laced education reform plan and then pour the Kool-Aid to parents and the community!
“(The governor) believes Rep. Carney would be a terrific candidate should he decide to run,” said Markell spokesman Jonathon Dworkin. “But he respects the process that any potential candidate must go through to make that decision and he’s confident that Rep. Carney will make the right decision for him and his family when the time comes. For now, we don’t have anything else to add.”
John, you can bet if you vacate your seat in congress Markell wouldn’t waste anytime going for it! John. Delaware public education is on the verge of complete collapse and will take every bit of five years to restore public confidence and quality leadership.
