Senators Carper & Coons Bring Delaware Day to Washington, DC

Dec 07, 2012 -- 6:11pm

Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons spoke of Delaware Day on the Senate floor yesterday.  Senator Coons tells the Senate that Delaware Day is about more than an accident in history that ours was the first state to ratify the Constitution.  Coons says that Delaware has a unique culture - a culture of respect, innovation, education and civility.  And it has a unique political culture - which includes Return Day.  

Senator Coons says that if Delaware’s tradition of Return Day was practiced in other states and Washington, DC, there might not be so much division in Congress.
