In the Delaware Republican Party's weekly message, State Senator Colin Bonini (R-Dover) criticized Markell and Delaware Democrats following recent crime in Dover and Wilmington, saying they're not doing enough to help law enforcement.
"Authorities in many of our municipalities will tell you they lack resources and manpower. Thatâ€™s inexcusable," Bonini said. "The governor and the majority party here in Dover need to ensure police forces throughout the state get the money they need to keep their neighborhoods safe."
