DOVER, Del. (AP) — A former U.S. marshal and chief of staff for the Delaware Department of Justice is running for state attorney general.
Delaware State News reports that 67-year-old Tim Mullaney Sr. released a statement Thursday announcing his candidacy. Mullaney, a Democrat, will seek the seat being vacated by Matt Denn, also a Democrat, who announced in August he won’t campaign for a second term.
Mullaney served as then-Attorney General Beau Biden’s top aide from 2011 to 2014, and led the department’s Fraud and Consumer Protection Division for three years before that. He’s currently the National Fraternal Order of Police’s director of labor services.
Mullaney said he’ll stand up to President Donald Trump and work to change aspects of the criminal justice system, such as providing more treatment for drug addiction.
