Here is a look at the candidates on the ballot for the general election.
With the 2018 primary in the books the field is set for the November 6 general election in Delaware.
For some candidates, however, the lack of challengers means they are virtually assured a new term. Barring successful write-in campaigns, Democrats will retain their seats in two Senate districts and nine House districts because no one filed to challenge them. On the Republican side, five House districts will see the incumbent return for a new term.
The following is how the election looks:
Incumbent Democrat Tom Carper will take on Republican Robert Arlett.
Democratic Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester had no challenger in the primary and will face Scott Walker in the general election.
