Delaware Senate candidates set the stage for November

(CNN) - Delaware voters were treated to a markedly different tone Thursday night as they watched their two Senate candidates together for the first time since the primaries.

During a candidate's forum, Republican Christine O'Donnell and Democrat Chris Coons displayed little of the animosity that came to define O'Donnell's bitter primary battle with Rep. Mike Castle.

Rather, the night was marked by polite discourse and even agreement as the two candidates sought to lay out their position on many key issues.

    o'donnell should have brought palladino from NY along for support.
    This is the teabagging party people – liars, cheaters, clueless, bigots, cowards, people into bestiality, porn. Those bible thumping family values folks.
    I thought they were against all of the above until it fits their bill.

    Men with sexual addictions end marriages. Sadly, Christine O'Donnell's comments about self-gratification are mocked. O'Donnell's comments could have been used to begin a discussion that might have saved marriages. That won't happen now.

    Chris Coons has had marxist views in the past. We ignore those past statements in favor of mocking Ms. O'Donnell.

    Yes, what a difference! O'Donnell, unprepared, no knowledge of finances, no knowledge about the US Tax system-since she can't seem to pay her federal taxes, can't pay her mortgage, right wing nut case on abortion, sex and marriage, a religious nut case and no knowledge on the way government works! If Americans are stupid enough to vote for her then they deserve the mess she will create! I pray for God to protect us from the likes of her and others in the Party of NO!

    I wonder if the liberal media is going to learn that we are sick and tired of the attacks that they keep firing at conservatives, especially women?

    For a party that screams racism whenever something doesn't go their way, The Democrats and liberal media cohorts have been lobbing sexist attacks at republican conservative women since Palin was picked to be vp.

    I hope O'Donnell beats "the bearded marxist" Chris Coons so he cannot go to washington to be Harry Reids "Pet".

    People of Delaware get yourself to a television and watch Ms. O'Donnell in action as she gives her position on a variety of subjects from a few years ago.

    Aren't you proud that you now have your very own Sarah Palin to vote for here?!

    The people of Delaware have a clear choice:

    The failed liberal policies of Obama and the Democrats - like ObamaCare, Stimulust, Cap-and-Tax, and a free ride for illegals.

    OR the conservative principles that made our country great - less government, less taxes, more freedom and liberty. Choose Christine O'Donnell, vote Republican!
