DeMint: GOP Critics Of O’Donnell To Blame For Her Loss.
Deflecting his share of the blame for the GOP’s loss in Delaware, Sen. Jim DeMint is arguing that Christine O’Donnell could have been a contender if only establishment Republicans had dummied up about her history of crazy talk. Asked about his endorsement of O’Donnell, DeMint, appearing on “Meet The Press” Sunday, said, “The tea party are responsible for just about every Republican who was elected around the country. This time last year…we were concerned about holding our own. Many thought Republicans would fall below 38 in the Senate. So I supported all the Republican candidates, including Christine O'Donnell. Unfortunately, she was so maligned by Republicans, I don't think she ever had a chance. … We did see, in the wake of her primary win, a number of Republicans suggest she was not a viable candidate. That did make it difficult for her to start on the right foot.”
