General Election 2002

U.S. House of Representatives
Democratic Primary

In one of the more contentious primaries in the 2002 Delaware campaign season, Lewes businessman Micheal C. Miller won the Democratic Party nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives race on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2002.

The slim victory -- 51.9% to 48.1% -- earns Miller a second shot at incumbent Republican Michael N. Castle in the general election on Nov. 5. Miller lost to Castle in 2000.

On Saturday, Miller won by 600 votes with 8,976 to Biener's 8,321.

Both were heavy underdogs to unseat Castle and as the primary date drew near, their race grew nasty as the Associated Press reported that Miller had been fired from a job at Delaware State University and had lost a lawsuit filed against him for not paying rent.

Miller charged Biener with planting the story, but the Wilmington lawyer adamantly denied the accusation.
