DOVER, Del. - The incumbent lieutenant governor Matt Denn spends his Saturday all over the First State talking to prospective voters.

"When I tell people I'm going to work on these issues with respect to business and education, they can take that to the bank because the last two times I ran when I said I was going to work on things, I did," said Matt Denn.    

He can't ask for enough hours in the day.  From campaigning to running the state, the work never stops.  He's also a part-time attorney.    

A job he holds the closest, a father of two seven-year-olds.

"I don't ever want to feel like I missed out on an important time, so I work very, very, very long hours," said Denn. "I try to make sure that I take care of the kids too, so every Sunday morning we got for bagels and cream cheese at Dunkin Donuts."    

This ritual is a promise he intends to keep to his family.  As is the one he says he made to the State of Delaware four years ago.

"We're trying to finish the work that we started getting people back to work and for me in particular an important part of that is to improve our schools." 

He says improving the economy starts with education.

"I started an effort to try to focus attention on the percentage of public dollars that go into classrooms versus into overhead and we have improved by $5,000,000."

He says he's confident he can get the job done.

"I don't think having experience in government is necessarily what counts. I think having shown that you can get things done in government is what counts."
