The 2016 Delaware gubernatorial election will take place on November 8, 2016, to elect the Governor of Delaware, concurrently with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, as well as elections to the United States Senate in other states and elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections.

Incumbent Democratic Governor Jack Markell is term-limited and cannot run for re-election to a third term in office.

Democratic primary

Former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, the older son of Vice President Joe Biden, was widely seen as the frontrunner, but his health problems prompted speculation that he might withdraw from the race or that other Democrats might run against him.[1][2] He died of brain cancer on May 30, 2015, at the age of 46.[3]
