A Middletown man has announced that he will be running against State Rep. Quinn Johnson in November’s general election.

Matt Brown says that he will be filing the paper work next week to run on the Republican ticket for the state’s 8th District Representative seat. 

He said that he has the Delaware Republican Party’s endorsement.

Johnson, a Democrat, currently holds the seat, representing the Middletown area.

Last year’s redistricting has taken most of the Townsend area out of the 8th district, rezoning it in with the newly created 11th district.
