-- it's one of the most captivating senate races of this election season Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell.
Is challenging Chris -- for the Delaware senate seats this Thursday I traveled to Delaware to sit down and talk with O'Donnell about how she's feeling.
About this coming Tuesday at her chances for another major upset.
What do you think in Houston this isn't an unconventional.
And there's people are more motivated they're more excited and they recognize what's happening -- And those people who have never voted before are reflected as homeowners but they will be reflected on Election Day.
Anything you can just feel the incredible momentum and excitement ladies and gentlemen the people of Delaware have Spokane.

You know you go on the campaign trail and you meet people who are very enthusiastic.
You can't necessarily.
That momentum and excitement.
Until election I'm confident regardless of the polls that we can win next Tuesday -- Managed to become this national.
Multiple names why I think -- Campaign being so -- I don't know I think I think it's because.
Pre primary everybody was counting on conventional wisdom the incumbents than a week.
Hand we defined that yet in an away all of the national and international attention has actually been.
Because my opponent and some not so friendly media have been trying to -- character guys who I -- what are you most.
Bristle at how you can hear us.
Well you know I don't know if this is a compliment or an insult but one of them things I hear often on the campaign trail as.
Well -- nothing like -- -- you for what.
Thank you hit out and a in -- a lot of people -- you do you know the issues or you do care.
And they're trying to paint -- as an extremist and you know you're not an extremist you you are very rational and you do believe what I believe and you know that's great lines we think that message out.

I'm trying to make this about the issues what is important to the people of Delaware how we're gonna get jobs back to Bel -- What's gonna happen in this economy that's -- should be the focus of this election cycle.
Instead of taken things that I said nearly twenty years ago out of out of context -- I yeah I never going to happen humanities.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- This election cycle should not be about something I said.
A decade and a half ago on company -- Something I did when I was in college you know I'm asking the voters to look at who I am now.
And look at what I want to do in this election cycle if any thing that a candidate -- in college.
Fair game yeah I think it should be for both candidates about what they're represented now.
And I do have to say my opponent said that studying under a Marxist and colleges -- -- have become a Democrat.
There -- his own words just a few weeks ago.
And that didn't get a lot of heat -- so again there's a double standard.
