On July 15, 2010, Christine O’Donnell’s campaign put this on her website:
…Kamen’s statement assumes that the liberal Mike Castle hasn’t cut a deal and would, immediately upon election, “pull a Specter” and change parties. Considering Castle’s consistent liberal voting record, such a scenario is far from wild speculation.
That statement by O’Donnell’s campaign set off a firestorm of speculation among O’Donnell’s blog network and a handful of duped conservative media, that a life long member of the Republican Party, her opponent, would jump ship and leave the GOP.
The Constitution Party had nominated Republican Christine O’Donnell for the U.S. Senate after she sought their endorsement, party Chairman Pell Sherman said.
The nominations took place on July 30th in Middletown, here is the announcement:
The Constitution Party of Delaware will be holding its Convention at Bogeys-Bar and Grill, in Middletown DE. at 7pm till 10pm. On the 30th of July.
Yet on August 11th, during a radio interview in Sussex County, Christine O’Donnell was directly asked by a caller if she would still run for the Senate as a third party candidate or a write in if she lost the primary, and O’Donnell claimed that the “REAL” question was whether or not her opponent would switch parties.
The interview was less than two weeks after she sought out and received the endorsement from the Constitution Party.
The answer to that caller’s “real” question was, “Yes.”
So Christine O’Donnell, who has been on the campaign trail spreading the rumor that her opponent would “change parties,” was simultaneously trying to make sure she was on the ballot in November regardless of what party she represented.
The Constitution Party of Delaware, however, failed to beef up their statewide membership over 300 people, so their candidates will not be on the ballot.
What is that name Republicans call other Republicans who have no party loyalty and act like Christine O’Donnell?
And for those of you who listen to O’Donnell on the radio and are amazed at the number of people who call in to support her, she sets it all up ahead of time and even helps with what questions to ask:
Subject: Christine on with Bill Colley Today. Listen & Call in at 5pm
It’s time to mobilize ourselves. Christine will be on Bill Colley’s Radio Show today at 5pm. As we all know, as soon as the Castle camp finds out about this they will have their goons call in to trip up Christine. We need to counteract this and flood the radio station with calls. We need to ask Christine things like:
-Will she fight against Cap & Trade?
-Will she fight to repeal Obamacare?
-What votes of Mike Castle’s does she disapprove of?
-Can you explain the Disclose Act and why there is such a fuss about it?
-I heard Mike Castle is a moderate Republican, what sort of things has he voted for which makes him a moderate?
-Why are you running?
-What endorsements have you received?
Here is the call in number: 302-945-9292
Let’s light up those phones. GO TEAM CHRISTINE!!!
