They keep hoping he’ll drop out.
I keep hoping he won’t.
Speaking of Delaware, I think he may have a fairly decent chance of winning it. While the state as a whole is pretty Blue, the rank-and-file Republicans are pretty conservative. They’re the same folks who nominated Christine O’Donnell over Mike Castle. Hopefully, the breakdown of RINOs to conservatives will be about the same tomorrow, and give Newt a much needed win!
What they should have learned after nominating Christine O'Donnell is that losing with someone who represents your passions is still losing. If the TEA Party people had pushed a candidate more qualified and less confrontational than Christine O'Donnell but less liberal than Mike Castle, they might have won a Senate seat in a state that had been steadily Democrat for a long time. We probably wouldn't have wound up with someone who was perfectly conservative on every issue, but we would have picked up an important vote in the Senate for six years.
