Delaware US Senate Election: Castle Says No To Write In Campaign Against O’Donnell (R) and Coons (D)

 

Castle says no to write in campaign and endorsement …

Republican primary loser Mike Castle says he will not be the next sore loser Republican establishment Lisa Murkowski; however, he  still cannot find the class to endorse  Christine O’Donnell, the winner of the GOP US Senate primary in Delaware, as he had stated he would during the campaign. Mike Castle stated that he will say no to a “write-in” campaign for the US Senate in Delaware.

Longtime Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.) announced late Wednesday that he will not launch a write-in bid for Senate this fall, ceding the stage to Tea Party favorite Christine O’Donnell (R) and New Castle County Executive Chris Coons (D).

Castle said he was “humbled” by the support and encouragement he has received since his primary loss to O’Donnell, but after giving a write-in bid careful consideration, he decided against it.

Castle just says no to endorsing the winner of the Republican primary. What an honorable republican that the GOP could have counted on with a necessary and needed vote against Democrats.

Castle, notably, did not endorse Christine O’Donnell, the tea party favorite who ousted him in the GOP primary earlier this year, in his statement leaving the race.

So why did Castle finally make the decision to say no to a write in campaign? Was it because it was a long shot at best at winning? Or was it because as the latest Rasmussen poll showed that a write in effort be long time “moderate” Congressman Castle would actually take votes away from the Democrat and give Christine O’Donnell a better chance of winning in November? What does that tell you as to who was supporting Castle if he took votes away from “the bearded Marxist” Coons?

It is possible that a write-in campaign by Congressman Mike Castle could hurt Democrat Chris Coons more than Republican Christine O’Donnell in the Delaware campaign for U.S. Senate.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Delaware voters finds Coons with 49% support, while O’Donnell earns 40% of the vote. Castle, a longtime congressman who lost to O’Donnell in the state’s GOP Primary, picks up five percent (5%). Another five percent (5%) remain undecided. To see survey questions, click here.

Conservatives 4 Palin is optimistic about O’Donnell’s chances.

O’Donnell was actually winning independents even if you assume all of Castle’s indy support in the poll goes to Coons. The biggest reason for optimism in this race is not only O’Donnell’s war chest but the fact that she can get back into this race just by consolidating the conservative/Republican vote. She’s performing about as well as she would need to among Democrats and independents to make this a race. She has room to grow simply by winning back more of her base of support.

      I don’t know if O’Donnell can win in Delaware or not, but I know she’ll have to do it without any help from Castle or the RINO Republicans. There’s no doubt in my mind that they prefer the Democrat winning to any conservative, and that’s why Castle will not run as a write-in.

      Fix your title. Delaware, not Maryland.

      IT wouldn’t work anyway, people are not sure if they should write “dumb ass” or “dumass”

      Is this the same O’Donnell that just got busted for lying about her education on Linkedin and Zoom?
      Same O’Donnell that dabbled in witchcraft at a blood-drenched altar in a graveyard?
      Same O’Donnell that wants to end masturbation because it’s evil?
      Same O’Donnell that wants to end all sex?
      Same O’Donnell that “found chastity” after admittedly banging every guy she meet in her first 2 years of college?
      Same O’Donnell that used campaign donations for fun, profit and bills?
      Same O’Donnell who stated that she wouldn’t lie to Nazi’s to save a Jew because “God would take care of everything”?

      Supporting her is yet more evidence that tea baggers truly represent the dishonest moron vote.

      And where’s the James O’Keefe story? I guess “R” was sent his orders not to write anything about O’Keefe’s attempt at raping a CNN news anchor. S.E. Cupp had the guts to call it “disgusting”. My guess is that “R” thinks what O’Keefe did was ok.

      Yoyo, you are such a clown. Actually you are a http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/assclown

      Exactly who do you think I get my orders from? Personally, who would care what you think. Suddenly Yoyo is the defender of women.

      Maybe, just maybe I did not write about iot because just like 1000 other stories that took place during the last week, I did not write about them either.

      Do not even pretend to state what I think. You hardly have the intelect or morals to do to. Don’t you have a rock that needs someone under?

      Good shot Red

      YoYo fits the description exactly. He or she is the voice of the liberal left. When you can’t find facts that matter, bring up a whole list of things that have nothing to do with the election.

      Has nothing to do with the election?
