Christine O’Donnell Doesn’t Miss Us Either

WILMINGTON, DE - SEPTEMBER 16:   Republican U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell listens during a voters' forum at Bernard and Ruth Siegel Jewish Community Center September 16, 2010 in Wilmington, Delaware.  Republican and Democratic candidates for Delaware's U.S. Senate seat, House of Representatives seat, state treasurer and state auditor met to answer questions at a community open house with the midterm elections a month and a half away.  Tea Party candidate Christine O'Donnell defeated nine-term Congressman Mike Castle (R-DE) in the Republican primary to run against Democratic candidate New Castle County Executive Chris Coons in November's midterm elections for Vice President Joseph R. Biden's former U.S. Senate seat.  (Photo by Brendan Smialowski/Getty Images) *** Local Caption *** Christine O'Donnell

When Daily Intelligencer spoke with Christine O'Donnell two years after her unsuccessful Senate run in 2010, the Delaware tea partier she said she was open to the idea of running again. Today her former opponent, Senator Chris Coons, has yet to find a Republican challenger for the midterm election, but O'Donnell has changed her tune. When The News Journal asked O'Donnell on Thursday if she's given thought to running this year, she said a rematch is "highly unlikely," adding that she'd "rather slam [her] hand in a car door."
