Du Pont Endorses O’Donnell

Former Delaware governor Pete Du Pont has endorsed Republican senate candidate Christine O’Donnell.  

Du Pont recently wrote about the race in the Wall Street Journal, saying “On Election Day the question is: Who will help correct the negative policies that have hurt our nation over the past few years? One of the candidates supports almost all of them; the other favors policies that would make us more successful in the future.”

 “I am honored and humbled to receive Governor du Pont’s endorsement in the race for the U.S. Senate, and I look forward to taking his same proven principles to Washington,” said O’Donnell in a statement. “Pete du Pont’s model of providing steadfast leadership and certainty is what America needs today to lift us out of our economic woes.”

In the primary, Du Pont had endorsed Rep. Mike Castle.
