DOVER, Del. — The head of the national Republican Party is due in Delaware to rally voters shortly after GOP Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell's campaign apologized to a radio station for threatening to sue over video of an interview.

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele scheduled a Dover stop Thursday with O'Donnell.

O'Donnell's campaign had threatened to sue WDEL-AM to stop release of the Wilmington station's video of a live radio interview Tuesday on "The Rick Jensen Show."

In part of the video, O'Donnell signals to a spokesman while she's being pressed about how she would have handled a county budget differently than her Democratic opponent Chris Coons.

The station says campaign manager Matt Moran called later and threatened to "crush" WDEL-AM with a lawsuit if it didn't destroy the video.
