(CNN) – Surprise GOP Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell has canceled her plans to appear on two national Sunday talk shows.
O’Donnell, the Tea Party-backed candidate who upset the establishment pick in Tuesday’s Delaware primary, had scheduled interviews with Fox News Sunday and CBS’ Face The Nation.
But an O’Donnell campaign spokeswoman told The Associated Press on Saturday that the candidate instead must attend events back in Delaware.
"Tomorrow the priorities are back in Delaware," spokeswoman Diana Banister said. "Those are people who supported her, who were very helpful to her in the campaign, and she feels obligated to be there and thank them."
Banister also told the AP she did not know about O’Donnell’s commitments when she accepted the two networks’ invitations to appear on their shows.
