Chinese American law prof falls short in DE Senate effort

Delaware Senatorial hopeful Jan Ting, a Chinese American law professor at Philadelphia's Temple University who once served as an assistant commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, fell short of reaching his political goal on Tuesday, capturing only 29% percent of the vote.

Ting, a Republican challenger to incumbent Senator Thomas Carper, would have been the first Asian American the state had sent to Washington.
