Anybody who this and that that in -- -- removable.
-- changed the complexion.
Number of races at a stadium district too many people in Washington.
I've been trying to tell the voters essentially they're -- fortunately Americans are standing up and throwing these guys now -- it's -- to be -- We got really good shot when President Obama needs people like me -- New Yorkers are mad -- us now and are not gonna take an in car.
Americans engaged in our government.
Voters in Republican primary this book and I respect it's -- in the Tea Party.
-- -- save any changes good changes -- -- -- -- way.
Hit seven wins they refuse to let America go.
About one knock down break out.
Continued if -- the American people speak not this last night -- -- did love.
-- we are now officially in the home stretch with just seven weeks to go before the November mid term elections at last night eighteen party earthquake.
Shook -- a number of key races now the -- we were closely -- was the big race in Delaware.
In which Tea Party candidate Christine O'Donnell upset the former governor of that state congressman Mike Cassel.
And that means this November O'Donnell will face off with New Castle county executive Democrat Chris -- How over the last 24 hours Democrats have a -- of the spin odonnells victory is proof.
-- some sort of civil war going on inside the GOP but the events of today.
Should help put those rumors to rest just hours ago the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee John Cornyn announced that the NR SE.
Pledged to strongly stand by Christine O'Donnell in fact the committee has already sent the maximum allowable donation to odonnells campaign.
Now in addition former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is throwing his support behind O'Donnell governor Romney released a statement today saying quote.
Now's the time for Republicans to rally behind their nominate Christine O'Donnell I believe it's important we support her so that -- -- win back the US senate this fall.
-- -- to me now is the big winner from last night's primary Republican senate candidate.
Christine O'Donnell is back Chris I think a regulation that last night thanks have been on the program.
Thank you thank you very much sun and thank you to you went and all of your your viewers for helping make this happen and believing in me from the beginning but -- -- you that have you heard from Mike Cassel yes.
Now I have not.
You have not now we just got -- say and I respect the the will of the voter in that decision.
There was a report out earlier today that he may not support -- -- -- she'll what do you think of the fact that hasn't wasn't gracious enough to call UN is saying something like that.
Well I can imagine that'd be hard he he hasn't lost an election in forty years and and I think that -- Didn't see this coming so he probably just need some time to.
Get through you know it's the day after but it's a shame that he won't endorse me because at the tables were turned I would have endorsed him and now he -- represented the Delaware Republican Party and they chose last night -- who they want to represent them on the ballot and if we continue in this divide.
Gonna make it a lot harder to win in November.
I still believe we can win I have absolutely no doubt that we can win after hearing the great announcements of support that you just.
Shared with your viewers.
Because it you know.
This is such an important race not only because of what our country is facing but because the winner of this election can be sworn in.
-- day after Election Day because it's a special election for the seat once held by Joe Biden.
Now senator Reid and Nancy Pelosi have already announced they're gonna have a lame duck session with bills like cap in trade and the dream act and you know Harry Reid called my democratic opponent his pat so -- -- serving in that lame duck session someone who's -- Promote that that very liberal agenda that can't even get enough democratic support.
Or someone who's gonna push back against the establishment and proven that you can have the determination and will to win and try to stop that lame duck -- -- Now you have not been shy in going on with our what our friend Governor Sarah Palin -- the lame stream media correct me if I were -- wrong today alone just this morning.
You were on The Today Show.
You -- on Good Morning America.
You were on the early show you're on CNN you're on all those liberal shows.
He was -- -- all right so my question of why have you decided to subject yourself to the what I would argue probably biased.
Tough questions and then obviously advancement of some of the attacks against U.
Well because I want an opportunity to -- those attacks.
My opponent is putting out lies they're being exasperated or was.
And they're being exasperated.
By the liberal media.
And I've found that when the viewers get a chance to meet me and hear me present my positions in my ideas.
They can see for themselves that I am not the person -- the liberal media is trying to paint me as so.
I see it as an opportunity I'm gonna have to face that same hostility in the US senate they're no different than some of the people that I will be serving with this November.
So if I if I'm afraid to face the liberal media how can I -- the voters trust to face the liberals and Washington DC and stand up for what is right.
A lot has been reported on when we had Karl -- on this very program last night.
And the things that he has said let me run some of the -- -- get your reaction.
This was about Mike -- Bad votes it does conservatives little good to support candidates -- at the end of the day.
While that may be conservative in their public statements.
Do not advance the characteristics of rectitude and truthful -- And his sincerity and character that the voters -- look but I think what I know and and and we'll we'll we'll see how she can answer these questions she sure as heck didn't answer thus far on the campaign why.
Well we did answer them on our website Christine 2010 dot com under Christine counters with the boxing gloves.
But you know I'm hoping that maybe it's just the fog of -- than hasn't cleared yet I wanna give him the benefit of the doubt that.
When all this -- he will reach for the greater good and do what is best for the greater good.
And help us win help us unite the Republican Party so that we can make sure we have another Republican.
Which may be the 41 vote to stop it you know against filibuster to stop that the the votes on things like cap and trade so this is a very important race in them.
I'm counting on Karl Rove to rise about it because he isn't he's a good man.
All right let me as -- Mike Cassel did speak out a little bit today.
And impart he'd blame people like me love and then Rush Limbaugh and his part of what he had to -- I think the end of misrepresentations.
Of the lives of Sean Hannity and motion involved here.
Or another very significant part all of -- I think some of the description locations and my opponent's race.
We're part of it as well how they were killed and -- voted to impeach.
George Bush I'll never know I mean you know -- the news for a couple days right around election time -- I think mr.
Those are the kinds of things soon the make politics very difficult.
They would vote for cap and tax and voted for -- that he say in the campaign correct me if I'm wrong that he wouldn't vote to repeal health care -- that is record absolutely.
Absolutely I guess they sounds like a -- blaming the blaming other people.
That's right that you no way you -- -- -- his voting record to the public so I thank you I I kind of agree with him I wouldn't call it blame I -- -- -- credit.
-- you were -- a band.
The leader of the band and saying we have got to stand on our principles we cannot sell out anymore.
Selling out on our principles is what has brought us our country to the brink of bankruptcy.
And we need to start focusing on solutions that create jobs based on the private sector -- you put the message out there that we have to look.
Not -- his knees and easiest -- but -- has the free market solutions to the economic crisis that we're that we're that we're finding ourselves and I think a lot of the voters began to -- Look beyond a lot of the mudslinging met my opponent was putting out to the positions that we are both presenting -- Many of the voters then told me.
He wasn't presenting any positions UN he's only one and so I did thank you for that.
-- even the White House is weighed in on this White House spokesman rob our good friend are propagandist friend Robert Gibbs weighed in.
And he's he's claiming that this primary is an a example of a civil war existing within the Republican Party.
Interestingly no Democrat and we'll get in this later tonight wants to be seen with Barack Obama in this election cycle but but here's the White House and -- -- -- Ran in 2008 against.
Against then senator Joe Biden and I think lost.
Fairly handily close to 21.
Look I think last night showed that there is a very.
Vociferous debate going on inside Republican Party.
Before the hearts and minds of Republican voters.
But let me ask you the broader question here because if you look at Kentucky if you look at Alaska if you look at -- -- angle.
If you look at a number of races in yours in particular it is the it has been the establishment.
You know this new conservative ascendancy in the Tea Party movement.
What is -- what do you think is happening in the country where the Tea Party -- keeps winning the people that -- you want.
Well what my race is about what we see it happening all across the country is that we're putting the the political process back into the hands of the people.
The people are tired of of the establishment on both sides who have lost their way and abandon the constitutional principles on which our nation was founded.
So what they've said is.
We are concerned about the direction our so called leaders are taking us in Washington and we want candidates are willing to stand up for that but.
But the White House this statement it's just all the more proof as to why the Republican Party in Delaware must unite in order to win this November.
-- Christine -- congratulation on -- big win last night we'll continue to follow this -- -- your -- very closely along with all the races around the country thanks for being here.
Thank you --
