Congressman Mike Castle lost some of his luster going into today’s GOP Senate Primary in Delaware. Public Policy Polling calls the race too close to call with Christine O’Donnell ahead of Castle by 3 points – 47% to 44%. In response Castle rips the “out-of-state” operation since received endorsements from Sarah Palin, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), and the Tea Party Express.
Well of course out-of-staters are getting involved since the Delaware GOP has backed Castle and has become unhinged as well as Delaware GOP chairman Tom Ross said “She is not viable for any office in the state of Delaware.” They have also filed a FEC complaint against O’Donnell because of the money from the Tea Party Express.
Is that why she was nominated to run against Joe Biden the last time around? Vice President Joe Biden must think she’s a more viable candidate than the Delaware GOP and Mike Castle believe since he warned Philadelphia Democrats of a O’Donnell victory.
Those of us who are out-of-state also want somebody in the Senate who will champion conservatism, not vote with Democrats. Regaining chairmanships isn’t the end game. If she wins the primary and loses, what is lost? It was a Democrat seat before. I don’t believe she will lose though unless the Delaware GOP continues to try to sabotage her campaign.
Regardless of who wins today the Delaware GOP are the losers.
