Delaware primary results were very kind to Christine O’Donnell Tuesday. In the Delaware primary results, Christine O’Donnell beat out nine-time Republican Party Senator Mike Castle in order to take home the Republican Senate primary. It wasn’t something that was a predictable outcome some months ago, but the Tea Party support for O’Donnell appears to have really come through in the end. When the November general elections get closer, September 14, 2010 could be declared as the day that the Tea Party candidates across the country finally made their first big blow in the political world.
According to the voting totals from the 325 districts in Delaware, Christine O’Donnell took home 30,461 votes, or 53.1% of the election. Michael Castle ended up with 27,021 votes, or 46.9% of the total votes in the election. That’s not a lot of votes that separated the two candidates in the end, but it really doesn’t matter if it’s one or one million votes, O’Donnell is now the Republican candidate on the November Senate ballot. In total, the voting was pretty indicative of a nice turn-out in the November elections, and could show that the residents of Delaware are very intent on changing who is in power right now in the state.
This win for O’Donnell will also be called a win for Sarah Palin, who did her best to show and garner support for O’Donnell in this election. How will O’Donnell fair in the November election? Well she definitely has momentum on her side now, and the political atmosphere is about to become even more tense as the lead candidates of the Republican and Democratic parties will now set their eyes on each other. That could lead to a lot of bad blood being exchanged in the media, but that’s also indicative of just about any election season around the United States right now.
