Christine O'Donnell Considers 2014 Senate Rematch

Posted: Updated:

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.

Last year, O'Donnell -- best known for saying she had dabbled in witchcraft and then assuring voters that she was not a witch in a campaign ad -- endorsed Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.

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."
