Carper easily wins re-election to Senate

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - November 6, 2012

Exit polling showed Carper defeated Republican Kevin Wade and Independent Alex Pires.

The Senate race was marked by sharp personal attacks against Carper from Pires, who accused Carper of hiding a serious health problem, being corrupt and lying about his military record.

Carper wants to use his third term to continue fighting government waste and inefficiency, work on implementing a deficit reduction plan, revising the tax code to bolster economic activity, and working to make the health care system more efficient.
