Breaking news - Mitt Romney will support Christine O'Donnell for the Senate seat once held by Joe Biden. Senator John Cornyn now says the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) will support O'Donnell with the maximum donation of $42,000.00.
If you are not familiar with this story, O'Donnell, a Republican, challenged sitting Republican U.S. Congressman Mike Castle for the Delaware Senate seat. The NRSC supported Castle - the voters in Delaware did not.
After O'Donnell won the primary last night, the NRSC said they would NOT support O'Donnell's campaign, but after hearing from "the people," has apparently done a 360. The question now is, will they support O'Donnell only by donating the maximum legal dollars, without actually being a high-profile support of her campaign?
