Is Delaware GOP Senate Candidate A Witchcraft “Dabbler”?

NewAmerican asks Is Delaware GOP Senate Candidate A Witchcraft “Dabbler”?

Who Runs Gov reports on Christine O’Donnell: Riding a national wave of anti-incumbent anger in 2010, O’Donnell bucked her party and sent a dramatic message to Washington by ousting veteran GOP Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.) in the Delaware primary in the special election to replace former Senator Joe Biden (D-Del.), who became vice president in 2009.

Endorsed by Sarah Palin (R) and the Tea Party Express, O’Donnell’s victory may place the GOP Senate majority out of reach as it makes it more likely that the Democratic candidate – New Castle County Executive Chris Coons – will win the November general election.

Now a three-time Senate candidate, O’Donnell lost to Biden in 2008. Since then, she has worked as a media consultant and head of a pro-abstinence group known as Saviors Alliance for Lifting the Truth (SALT).Gardner, Amy, The Washington Post, “In Del., GOP comes out swinging vs. ‘tea party,’” Sept. 13, 2010(1) Gardner, Amy, The Washington Post, “In Del., GOP comes out swinging vs. ‘tea party,’” Sept. 13, 2010(2)Gardner, Amy, The Washington Post, “In Del., GOP comes out swinging vs. ‘tea party,’” Sept. 13, 2010

As O’Donnell gained ground on Castle, worried state and national Republicans moved to block her momentum. They argued she was “unqualified” to hold office because of an IRS lien, a near-foreclosure on her mortgage and a dispute with her alma mater for not paying college expenses.

In Her Own Words: “Mike Castle is the most liberal Republican in the House.  This is not the year to be a liberal career politician who has consistently voted for the overspending and over-taxation that is bankrupting our country.”  WHYY news, March 10, 2010(4)WHYY news, March 10, 2010
