(CNN) - Sarah Palin, whose endorsement helped rocket Christine O'Donnell to victory, has yet to connect with the surprise winner in the Delaware primary, her campaign tells CNN.

Palin tried to call O'Donnell Wednesday by was only able to speak with the campaign manager, an O'Donnell spokesman tells CNN.

O'Donnell said on American Morning she has not heard from any GOP establishment leaders but did receive calls from Sen. Jim DeMint, R-South Carolina, and Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minnesota.

    Keep up the good work Sara Palin at making sure the Republicans party lost big time in Nov. just like they did in 2008 once you were placed on McCain ticket. Republicans you have John McCain to thank for your party being taking over by the far right wing nuts because McCain pick of the likes of Sara Palin. She is the death of the Republicans party. Even Morning Joe was angry at Sara Palin endorsing all this far right wing nuts that don't have a change at win in Nov. Sara Palin still do not believe she is the cause of McCain losing in 2008 this is why she is running around endorsing all these far right candidates. She really believes she is the star of the Republicans party and I am so glad she feels that way. She is the best gift to the Democratic party in 2012.

    Palin is going to destroy the Republican Party together with the nut-cases she and the Tea Party Express support.

    Getting close...CNN better ramp up the narrative of how spooked the Dems should be and start being more careful and studious about ignoring all the batsh-t crazy ideological drivel spewing forth from the right. Wouldn't want that precious establishment to falter, now would we?

    You would think that the newbie who has "so much to thank the quitter for" would have taken the self proclaimed goddess call without question.
    Doesn't sound as if the rethugs are too happy with any teabaggers right now.
    November is what is going to count. These are just some juveniles eating their own.

    I'll bet she heard from Michaelle Bachmann. She's the oly nutcase that lives farther away from reality than O'Donnell and Palin!
