Great News: National Republicans Now Pledging to Support Pro Gun O'Donnell in Delaware
In other news, New Hampshire race takes wrong turn.
In Delaware, Christine O'Donnell upset the Washington establishment by defeating the anti-gun Mike Castle, who is one of the most liberal Republicans in the Congress.
Last night, the National Republican Senatorial Committee indicated there would be no money for O'Donnell, and so we asked you to pound Sen. John Cornyn to demand that he reverse course.
Well, Fox News is now reporting that things have changed, as the NRSC has done an about face after getting “peppered” by angry constituents. The NRSC is now singing a different tune. Here's what a Congressional newspaper, The Hill, is reporting in our nation's capital today:
[Sen. John] Cornyn said that O'Donnell, the conservative insurgent candidate who upset Rep. Mike Castle last night in the Delware GOP Senate primary, would have the NRSC's backing like any other Republican Senate candidate.
“Let there be no mistake: The National Republican Senatorial Committee — and I personally as the committee's chairman — strongly stand by all of our Republican nominees, including Christine O'Donnell in Delaware,” Cornyn said in a statement.
The chairman of Senate Republicans' campaign efforts said he'd spoken Wednesday morning to O'Donnell and informed her of the NRSC's support, which included the maximum allowable $42,000 in direct donations to her campaign.
This is huge! Especially, considering that the NRSC had earlier indicated it would NOT help O'Donnell in her race to win “Joe Biden's” seat in the general election.
Thank you all for your activism!
In the New Hampshire primary, early returns gave Ovide Lamontagne the edge toward victory. But in late vote counting, the totals have switched and now he is currently behind by less than 1,000 votes.
