Christine O’Donnell endorses Mitt Romney
In an interview with Sean Hannity this evening, former Democratic Senatorial candidate, Christine O’Donnell, announced her support of the former Massachusetts Governor. TheAssociated Press reports:
Republican political figure and tea-party favorite Christine O’Donnell says she’s backing Mitt Romney’s presidential bid.
O’Donnell cites executive experience as part of her reason for endorsing Romney. She announced her decision Tuesday night during an interview on Fox News Channel.
O’Donnell gained national attention in 2010 with her bid for a Senate seat from Delaware. With tea party backing, she defeated an established Republican for the party’s nomination, former governor and longtime congressman Mike Castle. She then lost the general election to Democrat Chris Coons by a margin of 17 percentage points.
O’Donnell may be best known nationally for a campaign commercial in which she declared “I’m not a witch,” a response to a statement she’d made years earlier in which she said she’d dabbled in witchcraft.
ABC News reports the following written statement from Romney:
In a written statement, Romney welcomed the endorsement.
“Christine has been a leader in the conservative movement for many years,” Romney said. “Christine recognizes that excessive government threatens us now and threatens future generations, and I am pleased to have her on my team.”
