Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell ratcheted up her frustration with the National Republican Senatorial Committee Thursday for its reluctance to help finance her campaign to defeat Democratic challenger Chris Coons, according to Fox News.

O'Donnell, where, party“The Republican Party on the state level or on the national level, neither have come in to help me close the gap in the polls,” O’Donnell said, noting the Democratic Party has upped the ante by running more ads against her. “And my opponent…there’s so much to attack him on, yet the NRSC refuses to play, and that baffles me because he’s a sitting duck. There’s a lot to go after him [on].”

During her debate with Coons Wednesday night, O’Donnell acknowledged the difficulties she’s had with Republican leadership ever since she launched her campaign against party favorite Rep. Mike Castle, whom O’Donnell defeated in the state GOP primary.

“I've had to fight my party to be here on this stage to win the nomination, and to some extent I am still fighting my party,” she said.

A new Rasmussen Reports poll released today shows Coons’ lead over O’Donnell following the debate is down to 11 percentage points (51 percent to 40 percent). A Fox News poll released Wednesday, however, found O’Donnell trailing Coons by 16 percentage points.

“Keep in mind that in the primary race, I was about this far down in the polls as well,” O’Donnell said. “We didn’t close that gap until the day before the primary."
