State Rep. Darryl Scott (D-Dover) easily defeated Republican Sam Chick in the 31st District with 62.6 percent of the vote, according to state election results.

Incumbent State Rep. Darryl Scott (D-Dover) won 62.6 percent of the vote to easily win re-election for the Delaware Senate's District 31 over Republican challenger Sam Chick.

Scott received 4,809 votes, and Chick received 2,877 votes, according to unofficial results posted by the Delaware Department of Elections for Kent County.

Chick ran because he believed the state House of Representatives could have used a fiscally conservative voice to do away with wasteful spending and not go along with the Democratic majority most of the time.

But Scott proudly ran for re-election on his record, including legislation he had passed to enhance quality of life for Delawareans.

"I am proud of the accomplishments that include the creation of the Inspire scholarship and extended funding for the SEED scholarship that together provided thousands of Delaware students the opportunity to attend college, tax incentives to bring new businesses and ultimately more jobs to Delaware," he had said.
