GEORGETOWN — Julianne Murray, a Delaware attorney who fell short in a 2020 bid to unseat Democratic Gov. John Carney last November, intends to unveil plans for next year in mid-September.
“She will be letting everyone know what her intentions are for 2022,” said David Johnson, who is handling press/media for Ms. Murray. “All I can say right now is we will be making an announcement on Sept. 16.”
Subject to change, the live announcement will take place in Wilmington in New Castle County. Details on the location and time are being finalized, Mr. Johnson said.
A Republican from Seaford, Ms. Murray in the 2020 gubernatorial election garnered 38.6% of the vote. Gov. Carney landed nearly 60% in a successful re-election bid.
Ms. Murray is a managing partner with the Law Offices of Murray, Phillips & Gay.
The three state executive offices up for election in Delaware in 2022 are: attorney general, held by Democrat Kathy Jennings; auditor of accounts, held by Democrat Kathy McGuiness; and treasurer, held by Democrat Colleen Davis.
