I wanted to provide you with a REMINDER for NEXT MONDAY NIGHT – November 21, 2022!!!!!! 

We will be making a Special Presentation from Eastern Sussex Republican Club to our retiring 6th District Senator Ernie Lopez.  Please come out and show your support and let Senator Lopez know how much we have appreciated his efforts over the last 10 years.  Ernie has been a supporter of the ESRC and has decided to retire so that he may spend more time with his two daughters.  Here are some facts that you may not have known about Ernie Lopez:

  1. Senator Lopez was the first Latino to be elected to the Delaware Senate. 
  2. In 2012, Lopez ran for the Delaware Senate and won the Republican primary with 2,163 votes (54.9%) against Glen Urquhart.[12] He went on to win the three-way general election with 13,603 votes (56.1%) against Democratic nominee Andrew Staton and Libertarian candidate Gwendolyn Jones.
