When I am sick and tired of them running that.
Promo for me because it looks like those -- or about being number one it is time slot for like nine years.
Anyway Christine O'Donnell a key speaker at a conservative gather in Washington today some are questioning if she could really pull off a win now just like that western Marco Rubio.
When he was trailing then Republican Charlie Crist in Florida now.
Prisons to -- is leading the -- went out and medical tests are we gonna see I'll read the performance Scarborough what is right now -- what does that.
Hey -- well it's a little bit different than rubio if you take a look at Marco Rubio he was he was behind last year when I gave the money.
I gave money last year when he was losing to Chris but if you take a look at it after the primary this year he moved ahead after he won the Republican nomination.
It entered the general election he moved ahead of Charlie Crist.
In the same pattern in Nevada -- -- who won the primary moved ahead of Harry Reid.
Colorado can -- -- primary moved ahead of Michael -- Kentucky Rand Paul won the primary moved -- a Democrat Jack Conway Roy Blunt won the primary in Missouri moved ahead of like Robin Carnahan had to be moved ahead of Joe says stack in Pennsylvania was he won the nomination Rob Portman moved ahead of Fisher.
In Ohio when he won the nomination there's only one primary in the country that they do you know that this we've had this week we saw this week.
Christine O'Donnell won this stunning victory.
Huge upset -- -- big turnout in -- Rasmussen is now out since she is eleven points down after the primaries or something.
Keeping her from getting the same launch the -- people like -- and others did.
After they won their primaries in I think until she addresses he's -- side issues in -- candid and straightforward way.
It's gonna keep to people in Delaware for -- hear your message about taxes deficit debt and Obama here.
We you know that you you've got -- -- but controversy -- when when the -- at least was that you were you know dismissing term primary election night I -- though that.
So my colleagues I don't want rehashed stuff here.
But the feeling was that you -- talking on behalf of the Republican has -- I know you said you were not.
But Lou -- is that there is a party.
-- A split here that that.
That welcoming Tea Party here is but but would -- seats.
And Tea Party is good looking live parties feel the same way about Republicans is it -- No I don't think so look -- -- I think the Tea Party is a can be incredibly powerful and helpful movement this year to get the country on the right track.
But -- -- but my point is is it.
Candidates have been talking about deficits debt spending -- Obama care.
It all these other instances Nevada Colorado Missouri Kentucky Pennsylvania Ohio Florida.
As soon as they got the nomination they moved ahead of the other Democrat opponents because in states like that and the like those.
People started here in their message something is keeping people from here in his message these issues have not word that I talked about earlier this week are not ones that I came up with -- my -- I read about him.
In newspapers from Delaware over the last several months from national news magazines from talk radio in Delaware.
These are issues that are out there that are keeping people in Delaware from jumping aboard the O'Donnell bandwagon -- if she wants to win.
She better deal with them if she doesn't deal with them I think this highly unlikely she'll win which.
Don't hit -- in a repeat what you're able to everyone these other ones are but you've mentioned -- happened -- -- -- -- -- -- -- on shortly.
After her victory on an NC did -- disease that a a little pop after the victory.
That she fell down a lot in the polls and and everyone in the read camp was saying well boy this is a gift from haven't.
That's the you know that she was down a few points analyses up a couple of points I guess my only point -- it in mentioning -- -- where there is a great deal of baggage and our.
Lot of issues to address some things he has said it strikes on -- odd.
Do you think the electorate is of -- mind that they don't care.
Almost the last policy or the less you seem to comport yourself like it's senator or governor.
It's almost to your advantage these days I'm not -- lose title are single you're going -- anti what we expect.
For these prison -- look look.
It's not that you have to be polished is not that you gotta be perfect.
But you have to meet a -- a level offices of of acceptability -- -- right and look shared angle fought her way back -- when she moved ahead read.
Read pummeled her on TV -- hung right with millions of dollars of advertising hundreds of thousands of dollars of ads a week.
But then she's water back her way back in in -- I have to say because groups like one that I'm associated with.
American -- has spent millions of dollars of advertising on her behalf.
But Christine O'Donnell is eleven points behind after she won that primary.
She's got to overcome that nobody from the outside can do that she's got a -- say here's why these things happen.
-- look past these things.
Consider whether or not these issues and I'm talking about -- more port -- I think you're right there is a wave running.
It's almost like we don't care if you haven't had been held office will care if you have a run for office before she's run twice before.
But she has these issues -- for some reason or another are keeping people from from programmable.
Gravity and grab a hold of her banner and raises it high I mean.
I repeat all the rest of these guys jumped ahead guys and gals jumped ahead of their real democratic opponents after they won the primary but -- -- -- in Delaware okay but it.
Thank you very much Karl Rove -- smartest guys I -- Austin, Texas.
