Tea party favorite Christine O’Donnell is considering running for Senate again in Delaware, after being defeated by Democrat Chris Coons in 2010.
“I think I owe that to my supporters, to at least consider a run,” O’Donnell told the Wilmington News-Journal. “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 infamously released a TV ad insisting she was “not a witch” and once warned of “mice with human brains.”
With help from the tea party movement, O’Donnell was able to defeat Rep. Mike Castle in Delaware’s Republican U.S. Senate primary.
O’Donnell received only 40 percent of the vote in Delaware in 2010 and was easily defeated by Coons.
