Primary elections kicked off this morning at 7am in the state of Delaware and voters were presented with two choices from opposite ends of the spectrum. In one corner, sat Michael Castle, a two-term governor and the longest serving congressman in Delaware’s history. In the other corner, Christine O’Donnell, a conservative activist, waits to see if she’ll fill Vice President Joe Biden’s empty seat.
When Tea Party supported and Palin endorsed O’Donnell was stopped by reporters shortly after the polls opened, she said, “I feel very good today,” and am “a little nervous” but also optimistic. She plans to spend the rest of the day convincing undecided voters to vote for her and said, “We are not in this to lose by 100 votes.”
This possibility of Christine O’Donnell winning Delaware’s GOP Primary has sparked the attention of every media outlet in the country. Pundits have spoken up in opposition to Palin’s endorsement of O’Donnell saying that O’Donnell has a slim chance of winning in Novemeber wheras Castle atleast has a chance. One thing is for sure: the choice of O’Donnell over Castle will allow Delaware voters to choose between two clear oppositions and not just the lesser of two evils.
Time will tell on this one.
