O'Donnell says the current health care system is forcing emergency rooms to care for "illegal aliens."
Watch the debate live at and follow our live blog here.
Emergency rooms provide life-saving care for anyone who walks in the door, without asking their citizenship status. Does O'Donnell want life-saving care to be denied simply because a person is not carrying proof of legal status on his/her person?
Does she know how emergency rooms work?
stop cutting her off....you let coons go on and on and on and cut o'donnell off. wow....
Kudos to the geniuses at CNN who think people would rather watch the Parker Spitzer train wreck than the rest of the Delaware debate.
How can a guy likes Chris Coons change his views so many times in one set of comments
Christine O'Donnell debates like she's still in high school. Step aside – this is the Senate, not the student government!
Watching from California it is evident that Nancy is biased in every aspect of her body, facial expressions, verbal and non-verbal communications against O'Donnell. Some of the oone minute rebuttals have been less than a minute in regards to O'Donnell. Wolf is slightly biased against o'Donnell, yet tries to be fair in spite of his evident opinions of her. O'Donnell has been very impressive and I for one am surprised in a good way!
Why would CNN promote a debate for weeks, have Wolf Blitzer moderate that debate and then cut away to footage of the last miner being removed??
Are people really going to vote for this woman?
Put the debate back on!
Amazing! A three against one debate. Wolf is arguing with her about the merits of Obamacare. Isn't he the Moderator or is he running for Democratic Office now. Despicable!
Why would you cut off the debate and force us to watch that terrible new show featuring the guy who is into prostitutes. Shame on you,.
Is it possible for Wolf to be any more biased while hosting a political debate?
My head hurts when I listened to O'Donell's response on whether she believes in the evolution theory. She criticizes her opponent for being a career poltician but she herself answers like one.
Christine O'Donnelll just obliterated all 3 opponents in Delaware Debate.
I'm watching the Delaware Senate debate and find it fascinating that Ms. O'donnell has to debate three antagonists. Wolf and Karen are clearly in the Coons camp and she is still doing well. How interesting.
I was hoping to support O'Donnell.... based upon her "non-political" background, new leadership platform, etc.... however, listening to the debate tonight, I would suspect that it is more important to have an understanding of key issues than a prowess in throwing mud at your opponent. After listening closely, I would have to say that I am withdrawing my support and wish her the best.
Anyone can see Chris Coons is a status quo career politician. Christine O'Donnell has fresh ideas and seems to connect to both the frustrations and hopes of the American public!
CNN hyped the great debate in Delaware and then cut it off to show us the anti-climatic rescue of another Chilean miner. Pathetic.
Are you kidding me CNN. You have been promoing this debate all day and NOW you take it off the air mid way through. I have been very touched by the mine rescue, but it could have been picked up at 9pm AFTER YOUR DEBATE.
O'Donnell wins !
I'm appalled that CNN gave almost one hour to the Delaware Senate "debate"– not even close to a debate. You allowed Christine O'Donnell who has refused to be subjected to interviews on CNN to have an "hour!" to spout one-liners and campaign slogans. The interviewers tried to keep the debate on track, but . . . . How do you decide to give that kind of time to a small state like Delaware (admittedly an important race) yet don't offer that to other important Senate races? You are pandering to ratings and not programming news. Shame on you.
Would like to have seen entire debate but CNN producers succeed in disrupting another complete program. Does the producer need ADD meds?
Your CNN modarator is not only asking questions but joining the debat, how unprofessional and slanted.
I am from Alaska and I am so tired of Palin and her rhetoric. And here we have another.
O'Donnell is a Palin clone. She will not answer any direst questions and uses up her time slamming her opponent. She has no credibility (like Palin). Where do we get these women? Andy why would ANYONE consider voting for them!
