Failed Tea Party candidate and media lightning rod Christine O’Donnell says she might just run for Senate again in Delaware in 2016:
“I think I owe that to my supporters, to at least consider a run,” O’Donnell told the Delaware News Journal. “People sacrificed. Not only came out of their comfort zone – sacrificed to work hard in order to win the primary. And I think that I owe it to them to give it every consideration.”
After endorsing Mitt Romney last year, O’Donnell told New York magazine in February that she might be too busy and important to serve in a Romney administration, should he come calling. “Well, who knows,” she said. “I have to continue to help Governor Romney in any way that I can. Whether or not I would actually work in the administration depends, again, on what role, on what capacity, and what else was going on in my own career at the time.”
O’Donnell’s been mostly out of the game since she lost to Democrat Chris Coons in 2010, but the bio on her PAC page describes her current activities thusly: “Christine O’Donnell is a nationally recognized political commentator, marketing consultant, speaker and author. She’s been featured on the cover of Time Magazine, Newsweek Magazine and appears regularly on all the national news outlets.” In other words, senator might be the only job she’s qualified for.
