DOVER, Del. (AP) — Kathleen Jennings, a veteran prosecutor, has won the Democratic primary for Delaware attorney general.

Jennings, who has served both as state prosecutor and chief deputy attorney general — the number two spot in the state Department of Justice — defeated three other candidates in Thursday's primary.

Jennings advances to face Republican candidate Bernard Pepukayi in the November general election to decide who will replace incumbent Democrat Matt Denn. Denn chose not to seek re-election.

Pepukayi, a longtime Democrat, switched parties and filed to run late last month after former Sussex County prosecutor Peggy Marshall Strong quit the race last week, leaving the GOP without a candidate.

Jennings dominated her primary challengers in fundraising, raising almost $500,000 for her campaign, far more than the combined total of the other three candidates.
