  • About Chris

  • 21
  • Senate
  • My name is Chris Dalton and I am running for the State Senate for District 21. I grew up in Delaware in a household of just my brother, my mother, and I. I attended Sussex Technical High School and enlisted in the Marines following my graduation. Upon completion of 8 years in the Marines, I came back to Delaware and enrolled at Delaware Technical Community College where I earned an Associates in Criminal Justice. I then transferred to Wilmington University where I have since earned a BA in Psychology and an MBA in Marketing Management. Currently I am employed at LL Flooring as a store manager.
    I decided to run for State Senate to ensure that liberties will always come first for Delawareans. From the freedom to smoke marijuana, the freedom to engage in sex work, and the freedom to sell meals cooked in your own kitchen. I oppose government overreach and want to reduce both taxes and the size of the state government.
