“Delaware families deserve the pro-life leadership Christine O’Donnell so capably provides,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA List Candidate Fund. “Unlike her primary opponent who has an explicitly pro-abortion voting record, O’Donnell has expressed her strong determination to be a vocal advocate for women and unborn children in abortion debates on the floor of the U.S. Senate.”
These words came from the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund who endorsed Christine O'donnell today. This is a significant endorsement in a state like Delaware which although leans Democrat in registration is more of a pro-life state. This is not the kind of endorsement that can turn an election by itself like an endorsement from Sarah Palin or Jim Demint could. However, when you add it to the ever growing list of organizations and individuals endorsing Christine you end up witha whole new picture. The Susan B. Anthony List now joins Common Sense Communities Society (Delaware's T.E.A. Party endorsement), One Nation PAC, Erick Erickson of Redstate.com, Nationally syndicated conservative talk star Mark Levin, Citizens United, Pam Geller (Atlas Shrugs), Joanne Herring, and Catholic Families for America.
Couple this with the results of a poll released July 15th by Rassmussen Reports which shows O'Donnell now holding a 41-39 lead over New Castle County Executive Chris Coons and you have the making of a winner. Also, as O'Donnell's conservatism gives her campaign rise, the outright Progressivism of her primary opponent, Congressman Mike Castle is bringing the house down around him. Castle has lost 9 points since April and has dropped below 50% in polling against Chris Coons. Castle is holding on to a 47-36 lead which is STAGGERING when you consider that Castle has been Delaware's lone congressman since 1992.
Castle's fall, O'Donnell's rise and Coons' inability to rise out of the 30 percent range all are signs of the T.E.A. Party's positive influence on the 2010 elections in EVERY state. Those who would claim otherwise, are spinning the truth. Indeed, a look at the numbers behind O'Donnell's lead over Coons shows that Delawareans are every bit as T.E.A. Partied up as any other state. 51% of Delawareans favor repeal of the healthcare bill, 58% desire a law similar to Arizona's to be enacted in Delaware and 64% believe that the economy is getting worse or staying the same. Look for November to be a referendum on both Congressman Mike Castle and President Barack Obama.
