One Far Left Candidate Down, One To Go

O'Donnell Takes Early Lead Over Castle in Delaware GOP Senate Contest

Fox is actually reporting that O'Donnell has now beaten Castle.

This will help avoid confusion in the November general election. The voters in Delaware would have gone to the polls and saw Mike Castle and Chris Coons and would have been unable to pick out the Democrat and Republican.

Castle is a pro-abortion, pro-gun control RINO. O'Donnell is the Tea Party favorite. She may not win and this primary may cause the GOP control of the Senate but I personally am okay with that.

I have said in the past that we have to hold our nose sometimes and vote for a candidate that we do not entirely support because the Democratic alternative is worse. The obvious analogy is John McCain v Barrack Obama. McCain was not my first choice but he is a damn sight better than Obama.

In this race though, without knowing much about Coons, it's not impossible that the Democrat could have been the more conservative choice between him and Castle.

Sometimes holding your nose is okay but if you have to hold it so hard you stop breathing it's unproductive.

She could win if the RNC would get behind her. They have already announced they would not support her. Just who do the plan to support? Coons, the democrat? I am thinking that if every American who supports what she stand for would just send her $5.00, she would not need the RNC. She could do it without them.

What we need to do is force the GOP to support ALL of the republican candidates, whether Tea Party or otherwise. We must hold their feet to the fire because without money, they will surely lose.

It is imperative that we win come November because America can't take another two yars of unfettered democrat rule.

Gramma, I suspect the GOP has helped her by turning their back

Cube, it's time for change in the GOP
