Tea Party on a roll – O’Donnel wins 53-47

September 15, 2010 04:47

Tea Party favorite Christine O’Donnell soundly defeats veteran politician Mike Castle for the Republican Senate nomination in Delaware, posing a major upset to the political establishment.



‘Party fractures on full display, Republican aides told Fox News Tuesday that O’Donnell would not be getting national fundraising support. State party leaders had warned that O’Donnell cannot compete against Democrat Chris Coons and vigorously backed Castle, a nine-term congressman and former governor. ‘

‘”Wake up NRSC,” he added. “The reason the Tea Party movement has grown into such a powerful force is because of the failures of establishment organizations such as yours to honor the principles of the Republican Party platform.”You tried to force through the most liberal Republican in Congress on the voters of Delaware and they rejected you.” ‘

‘Tea Party-backed candidate Ovide Lamontagne also took the lead in the GOP primary contest for Senate in New Hampshire. ‘

‘Democrats were eager to draw lessons from O’Donnell’s victory and immediately portrayed her Tuesday as too extreme for her state, as they did when conservative Sharron Angle won the GOP Senate nomination in Nevada earlier this year. ‘
