Former Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell has re-entered the headlines. The Delaware native has recently announced that she has signed a book deal after her defeat in the Senate race last year. In that election, Miss O'Donnell polled 40% in a largely blue state. O'Donnell gained much traction with many conservatives last year after Mark Levin and other radio hosts endorsed her over Representative Mike Castle for the nomination. The primary in September gained national attention and saw O'Donnell beating Castle 53-47%.
Now O'Donnell is back in the spotlight, saying that the White House had pegged her as the number one target in the 2010 midterms. This has come out in an email circulated from her to her supporters. This also comes after frequent ridicule by Democrats and the media.

Not the point, if you can understand the fact that the media attacked candidates who may be problem later to them Can you imagine if she had won? They would go ballistic.

I suppose that you were convinced of that by the LSM.
As long as you continue to let the liberal media tell you who is electable and who isn't, the RATS will survive.
Yep, although she wasn’t so much a target as an opportunity. They didn’t “target” her because they wanted to defeat her — they were sure of that.
They made her the national face of the tea party movement, in the hopes of turning around the national election. They used her as the generic bogeyman, to shut down Angle, Buck, Rease, Toomey, and Fiorina.
They succeeded in most cases, Toomey managed to hang on but acknowledged the difficulty posed by the white house strategy.
