Denn: Primary Responsibility If Elected AG To Reduce Crime Rate

Posted: Updated:
NEW CASTLE, Del. - Four days ago, attorney general Beau Biden announced he's forgoing re-election to run for governor.

The question: who will try to replace him? Lieutenant Governor Matt Denn could be that person.

Lt. Gov. Denn (D) tells 47 ABC that he filed his paperwork this morning. He has served as lieutenant governor since 2008, before that as insurance commissioner. Denn says he hasn't thought too long about running for AG, but adds he sees a need.

"Our crime rate is far too high and my primary responsibility is to address that problem," said Denn. "When you have a high crime rate, it affects people very directly and personally, but it spills over into other areas."

Denn is expected to release more details on his campaign plan in the upcoming weeks.
