O'Donnell Speaks To Gun Club In Delaware

October 7, 2010

Speaking at the Delaware State Pistol Club, Senate-hopeful and self-proclaimed non-witch Christine O'Donnell, answered a question about her supposed paranormal powers.

"I won't have magical powers, but I will have enumerated powers in the Constitution," O'Donnell said to laughter.

O'Donnell spoke at the club this morning about her commitment to the constitution, with a special emphasis on the Second Amendment.

 

"Regardless of circumstance, regardless of income, every Delawarean, every citizen has a constitutional right to self defense," she said. "Our leaders in Washington, our leaders in Dover, seem to have forgotten that... I assure you that when I go to Washington I will defend the Constitution."

O'Donnell also commented on her Wednesday meeting with National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn of Texas, where she asked for financial help. O'Donnell said she was still waiting for an answer, but said "but even if they don't, I'm confident. We are building coalitions and we are building a strong grassroots campaign and rising in the polls." Two polls released this week show O'Donnell trailing Democrat Chris Coons by double-digit margins.

A Fairleigh Dickinson University survey released Tuesday showed 53 percent of likely voters supported Coons and 36 percent were going with O'Donnell. The poll of 801 likely voters was conducted September 27-October 3 and has a 4-point error margin.

"She speaks for us," said Dan Linbergh, a director at the pistol club. "We are unhappy with the direction of this country, and she is the only one who can stop it. We need another Democrat like we need a hole in the head."
