Kaine Sees Hope in Delaware Tea Party's Win

Wednesday, 15 Sep 2010 08:41 AM


Democratic Party chief Tom Kaine says tea party-backed candidate Christine O'Donnell's primary win in Delaware shows Democrats have "a super chance" to win in November and retain control of the Senate.

O'Donnell had the big upset Tuesday among the last seven primaries of the season. She ran against the GOP establishment's choice, former Gov. Mike Castle, for the Republican nomination for the Senate seat once held by Vice President Joe Biden. O'Donnell was endorsed by Sarah Palin.

Kaine told the NBC's "Today" that O'Donnell's win over a moderate Republican underscores the "civil war" going on between the tea party and the Republicans and sends a message that moderates should keep out of the GOP.
