Christine O’Donnell, the Senate candidate who questioned whether separation of church and state was explicitly in the Constitution, said on Tuesday that she prays that her supporters will turn out and snatch victory from what polls say is a likely defeat. “I’m feeling very excited,” O’Donnell said after voting and dropping off a box of doughnuts, one of America’s favorite comfort foods. “It’s neck and neck and I’m praying that everybody turns out.” O’Donnell, who upset the GOP establishment to win the Senate nomination, and her Democratic opponent, Chris Coons, voted Tuesday morning in Wilmington, Del. They are fighting for the seat held for more than 30 years by Vice President Joe Biden.

Christine O'Donnell was threatening to make trouble for Sarah Palin's speech this weekend to a tea-party group in Iowa, but it looks like O'Donnell won't be showing up after all. After it was widely reported that the former Delaware senatorial candidate, author, and TV interview flight risk would speak before Palin at the Indianola, Ia. event Saturday, the organizers of the "Restoring America" rally have apparently changed their minds. One of the rally's organizers, Charlie Gruschow, said, that “there were issues with the schedule of the event,” adding that the group, Tea Party of America received “some comments from people planning on attending the event questioning” the decision to add O'Donnell to the agenda.

Christine O'Donnell is promoting her new book, "Troublemaker," whose title is from a Time magazine reference to the former Delaware Senate candidate and "tea party" favorite. In the book, and in recent interviews, O'Donnell has made no secret of one of her big regrets — and her feeling of betrayal at the hands of Bill Maher, a man she had considered a friend. On "Real Time With Bill Maher," the HBO host featured a bit of 1999 video from "Politically Correct" with O'Donnell. In her new book, she says the clip showed a "nothing comment" about a boy she'd known in high school who dabbled in the occult and it started a "modern-day witch hunt – with me cast as … well, as the witch.

She's not a witch. But she has the power to make Democrats jump for joy over her endorsement of Mitt Romney. She is, of course, Christine O'Donnell, the former Senate candidate from Delaware who failed to be elected last year in a season in which Republicans won just about every race from dogcatcher on up. O'Donnell, you might remember, cut an infamous campaign ad in which she jokingly denied dabbling in the occult. Delaware voters were not amused and sent Chris Coons to the Senate.

Christine O'Donnell, who was backed by the conservative "tea party" movement in her unsuccessful bid for a Senate seat from Delaware, denied Thursday that she had misused campaign funds, and she criticized opponents for pursuing a federal investigation into her spending. "There's been no impermissible use of campaign funds whatsoever," O'Donnell said on ABC's "Good Morning America. " "You have to look at this whole thug-politic tactic for what it is. " Speaking on NBC's "Today" show, O'Donnell was more explicit, castigating mainstream Republicans and Democrats.
