“We had an incredible victory . . . We have won,” said Christine O’Donnell in her concession speech tonight. “The Delaware political system will never be the same. . . . The Republican party will never be the same. And that’s a good thing.”
O’Donnell said she had urged Coons, in her concession call, to fight against higher taxes.
“We’re not going to stop fighting, either, ‘cause there’s a lot of work to be done,” O’Donnell added. “Our elected officials will be held accountable by their constituents, like it or not.”
She ended the speech on an upbeat note: “We’ve got a lot of food, we’ve got the room all night, so God bless you. Let’s party.”
