Team O’Donnell Looks Ahead

From Matt Moran, her campaign manager:

Looking toward November, Moran, who guided conservative Doug Hoffman’s insurgent House campaign in upstate New York last year, knows that O’Donnell faces what is sure to be a rough-and-tumble campaign against Democrat Chris Coons, a county executive. O’Donnell, he says, welcomes the fight. “Christine will be a phenomenal candidate who will elevate the party as a whole,” Moran tells me. “[Republicans] need to get behind her. Her brand will sell not only in Delaware, but nationally, if you give her a shot.”

From Emeka Igwe, O’Donnell’s campaign counsel:

Coons, of course, will do what he can to continue to highlight O’Donnell’s perceived weak spots. The latest Public Policy Polling survey shows him leading by 16 points against O’Donnell, 50 percent to 34 percent. Emeka Igwe, O’Donnell’s campaign counsel, says that he is ready to help guide the nominee through the expected onslaught of opposition research and attack ads. “She has already been through so much,” he says, as he watches the election returns come in. “What’s coming won’t be much different than what she faced in the primary. They’ll try to slander her, but tonight shows how people are fed up with politics as usual.”
