Christine O’Donnell gave special credit to Gov. Sarah Palin in her victory speech Tuesday night:
“You betcha!” an ebullient O’Donnell told cheering supporters, using a Palin catch phrase. “There’s another woman I’ve gotta thank, you betcha!- JP
When the cheering crowd subsided, O’Donnell continued: “Thank you governor Palin for your endorsement. Because she got behind us war-weary folks, and gave us a boost of encouragement when we needed it.
“And she was a vote against the politics of personal destruction,” O’Donnell told the enthusiastic throng.
On Sept. 9 a Palin post on her Facebook page drew national attention to O'Donnell's campaign, stating: "A wave of positive change can really sweep across our land with the election of constitutional conservatives who promise to use common sense, and rein in the federal government spending. Please support Christine O'Donnell of Delaware."
