Gov. John Carney's address Thursday to a joint session of the General Assembly started with an unexpected moment. When new State Senator Stephanie Hansen introduced Carney to the General Assembly, she inadvertently called him "John C. Markell."   Carney took it in stride and when he got to the podium to start his speech jokingly called Lt. Gov. Bethany Hall-Long "Lt. Gov. Matt Denn," recalling Denn's time as Markell's Lt. Governor.
