​"In his announcement speech, Mr. Johnson, 32, pledged to combat inequality and fight for a fairer legal system.

'My strategy is to unite coalitions of people who face oppression every day,' he said. 'I will be the candidate who speaks up for those whose voices have been silenced.'

'I am not afraid to say that ‘Black Lives Matter.’ I support the ‘Me Too’ movement, and am not afraid to say ‘Time’s Up.’ I will stand up for the rights up the LGBTQ community. I will stand with our DREAMers, even if Washington will not. And that’s just who I am. Being unwilling to compromise in a world fraught with bigotry, hatred, and injustice, I stand for a bold new vision for Delaware.'

Mr. Johnson, who resigned his position with Gov. John Carney’s office at the end of January, has previously worked for the city of Wilmington’s law department. He is the vice chair of the Wilmington Democratic Party and sits on the board of directors for the Delaware Center for Justice and the executive committee of the Delaware State Bar Association." - an exert from the Delaware State News.
