Christine O'Donnell's 2010 run for Senate in Delaware has become a cautionary Tea Party tale. Riding a wave of Tea Party anger, she defeated the more moderate Rep. Mike Castle in the GOP primary -- who was believed to have the best shot at winning in the general election -- only to then lose to Democrat Chris Coons.
But O'Donnell wants another run.
According to Delaware Online, O'Donnell is considering a rematch with Coons, now the state's junior senator, when he is up for reelection in 2014.
"I think I owe that to my supporters, to at least consider a run,” O'Donnell said in an interview last week. "People sacrificed. Not only came out of their comfort zone -- sacrificed to work hard in order to win the primary. And I think that I owe it to them to give it every consideration."
O'Donnell's most recent project was headlining the "troublemaker" film festival in Tampa, Fla. during the Republican National Convention.
Responding to her support, Romney said in a statement, "Christine has been a leader in the conservative movement for many years." He added, "Christine recognizes that excessive government threatens us now and threatens future generations, and I am pleased to have her on my team."
