Rove Sees Lesson In Christine O’Donnell’s Loss
Karl Rove says that Christine O’Donnell’s loss in Delaware should be a lesson to conservatives:
“It gave me no pleasure to say that she was unlikely to win,” he said. “But this again provides a lesson. This is a candidate who was right on the issues, but who had mishandled a series of questions brought up by the press.”
I’d also add that nominating an extremely conservative candidate in a state that has been historically Democratic for the past two decades isn’t that great an idea either, even in a year when Republicans are riding a national wave.
