Unnamed Senior Dems Admit Delaware Senate Race Will Be Close

Some more insight into why Obama Went Down To Delaware, courtesy of HillBuzz, emphasis mine:

Somehow, I turned the topic. . .to Christine O’Donnell’s Senate race in Delaware because the guy I was talking to did a lot of fundraising in New England during the 2008 campaign and I know he “gets” states up there better than I do, having never lived there.

He told me that Christine O’Donnell is going to get VERY, VERY CLOSE to winning in Delaware but he does not think she will win. But, he emphasized, “It’s going to be scary close for Coons”.

I then asked him if he thought Scott Brown would win in Massachusetts, and he said, “No, I was surprised. I thought Coakley would win but it would be close”.

So, I’m thinking Democrats are really very scared of O’Donnell.

They can’t make the mental leap to believe she could win. . .just like they couldn’t wrap their heads around Brown winning “the Kennedy Seat”. . .but they see that O’Donnell is “close” in the way Brown was “close” in his race against Coakley.

My gut tells me that “close” means O’Donnell will win this is support continues for her nationwide the way it did for Hottie McAwesome in his Senate race.

The Cocktail Party GOP establishment didn’t like Brown anymore than it likes O’Donnell. It’s doing about as much for O’Donnell as it did for Brown, which is pretty much jack squat.

I don’t have anything concrete on this, but my GUT tells me that if we keep working hard for her that she’ll win…and defeat not only Coons, but the Cocktail Party GOP establishment too.

Message to Cocktail Party GOP establishment: Progressivism is political disco, and if you want to go under the bus, just keep screwing in the vertical.

    She has a new ad campaign going on after Coons the TaxMan. It’s a good move. The economy here isn’t as bad as everywhere else. Obama won DE 62/37, so it’s a tough state.

    I’m not sure what New England is supposed to have to do with a mid-Atlantic state like Delaware…
