Tea Party-Backed O'Donnell Upsets Castle in Delaware GOP Race

Published:

Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell, a perennial candidate with no government experience, soundly defeated veteran politician Mike Castle for the Republican Senate nomination in Delaware Tuesday -- posing a major upset to the political establishment on the last big day of primaries. 

With all precincts reporting, O'Donnell beat Castle 53-47 percent. 

O'Donnell's win stands as the latest sign of Tea Party strength but also the latest test of whether that movement helps or hinders the Republican Party, with an open seat and perhaps a GOP Senate majority at stake. Tea Party ally Carl Paladino also beat former Rep. Rick Lazio in the New York Republican gubernatorial primary Tuesday.

A RINO such as Castle is no better than having a Democrat holding that office. I will go so far as to say that RINO's are Democrats posing as Republicans.
