Christine O'Donnell Raises a Challenge

The Delaware Senate race just got a little more interesting with the addition of Republican Christine O'Donnell to the race. O'Donnell forces a September primary against Representative Mike Castle who is looking to move from the House to the Senate.

Could Delaware be another Massachusetts? O'Donnell another Scott Brown? Castle voted against the Obamacare bill but has recently come out against repeal of the bill which will put him at odds against Senator Jim DeMint who has repeal at the top of his agenda.

Castle's position against repeal fits right in with his moderate label; he also voted FOR Cap and Trade in the House and supports embryonic stem cell research. He's soft on immigration and voted against forbidding interstate transportation of minors to get abortions.

Christine O'Donnell, on the other hand, is a proven vote getter, having run against Joe Biden for the seat in 2008 and garnering 35% of the vote - not enough to win, but quite respectable in a state that is supposedly a blue state.

The political landscape is very different now than in 2008 and O'Donnell looks to be a strong candidate.

She's pro-life, vows to fight to reduce taxes, strengthen national security and support gun rights.

All in all it should make the race more interesting and in today's political climate, anything can happen! If Mike Castle isn't going to join the Republican fight to repeal this job-killing liberty-sucking behemoth that is Obamacare, we don't need him.

Go here to donate to O'Donnell's campaign and put a true conservative in the Senate.

    Please read this article about Christine! I can assure you that she’s not all she’s cracked up to be! Christine has never held a real job and has been running (unsuccessfully) for political office since 2006. She has been consistently falling into personal financial trouble and her campaign has had its shares of problems as well. Numerous former employees for her campaigns have come out and said that they were never paid for their work. Please read this article to know the truth about Christine!! Also, be sure to check out her wikipedia article. I will wholeheartedly support conservative candidates, but certainly not this one.

  2. She hasn't held a steady job, if any job at all, since she ran as a write-in candidate in 2006. She carries campaign debt from year to year, won't work and doesn't pay her staff as promised or reimburse them for their expenses but does manage to reimburse her boyfriends for their expenses. She is quoted as saying that if she takes a job, she can't live off of campaign contributions.

    She carried debt to companies who worked with her 2008 campaign for over a year while she traveled the country, and apparently even went to the Middle East, all without being employed. She had to have a closed campaign announcement and even then she had an unpaid campaign staffer from 2008 removed from the event. She attached herself to the state party in 2008 when she won the nomination at the convention going as far as to use the state party headquarters as her campaign headquarters, and in 2010 she's acting like the state party outcast and disregarding the nomination process.

    Instead of working between campaigns to pay off debt, she carries the debt into the next election cycle and uses donations she's getting now to pay off debts from 2008. She's runs her campaigns like a Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme, robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    And her 2010 campaign, to date, has consisted of blaming Castle and his "minions" for almost 20 years worth of her personal financial problems, calling Castle a RINO, and asking for money.

    But the worst part about O'Donnell running again is that good conservatives with good values get conned by her every election cycle.
