(CNN) - Delaware GOP Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell said Wednesday God is the reason she didn't give up on politics after her failed 2008 Senate bid.
"God continued to strengthen and empower us," O'Donnell told the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). "If it weren't for faith when all logic said it's time to quit, we pursued, we marched on because we knew God was not releasing us to quit."
O'Donnell, who has said she will no longer speak to the national media, continues to receive nationwide attention for controversial comments she made in the 1990s.
In the interview that aired on CBN's "The Brody File," O'Donnell said she wants the Constitution to be "the litmus test for all legislation."
"If that were the case, we wouldn't have Obama care, we wouldn't have cap-and-trade, we wouldn't have this financial so-called reform," O'Donnell said.
O'Donnell will face Democratic Senate nominee Chris Coons in the November election.
