Chris Christie: Nominating Christine O’Donnell Was A Mistake
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie didn’t hold back on Meet The Press when he expressed his belief that the Delaware GOP blew it when they nominated Christine O’Donnell:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says the Senate race in Delaware was “a missed opportunity” for his fellow Republicans to pick up the seat long held by Democrat Joe Biden.
Tea party favorite Christine O’Donnell won the GOP nomination in an upset over moderate Rep. Mike Castle. But she lost the general election Tuesday to Democrat Chris Coons.
Christie says he was proud to have endorsed Castle.
Christie is, of course, correct. The Delaware GOP nominated someone who had no chance of winning, and the people who donated to Christine O’Donnell’s campaign may as well have thrown their money down a rat hole. The fact that there are still people like Jim DeMint who don’t recognize this fact tells us just how far gone the GOP actually is.
