Of course he would. Why vote for a liberal lite when you can get the real deal with Coons.
Castle would have crushed Coons. The GOP apparatus from out of state destroyed what could have been a good year for the GOP in Delaware.
I am not a big Mike Castle fan, but the September primary was not the correct time to settle the score.
As I predicted, COD was a down-ballot disaster. Instead of recapturing the State House, the GOP lost additional House seats. The GOP candidate for State Treasurer, Colin Bonini, a genuine conservative, narrowly lost. He and other downballot conservatives wanted CASTLE at the top of the ticket.
Castle was only going to serve out the remaining 4 years of the Biden term. He would have given the GOP a vote on most issues about 60 percent of the time - like Scott Brown. Instead, we got someone who will be Reid’s “pet,” possibly for life. He will be wrong on issues 100 percent of the time.
Palin, DeMint, LEvin and others were WRONG to interfere in this race. Moreover, to DE, Castle would have enjoyed the most seniority of any freshman with his years in the House and having been a governor.
