War of words ensues in Delaware after TV exec hits back against O'Donnell

(CNN) - In the process of trying to motivate her base and convince last minute undecided voters to cast a ballot in her favor, Republican Christine O'Donnell has entered a war of words with a local television executive – and may have lost his vote in the process.

O'Donnell purchased eight 30-minute blocks of air time in Delaware last week, four of them on a local cable network operated by Tim Qualls that broadcasts in northern Delaware. The Senate candidate's campaign planned to run an Obama-style closing argument in the form of a 24-minute commercial meant to highlight O'Donnell's ties to Delaware and build connections with local voters. The ads were scheduled to run at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Qualls' network, as well as a local FOX affiliate.

Come 10 a.m. however, channel 28 failed to broadcast O'Donnell's ad and the campaign blasted the station on their Twitter account.

GOP leader to campaign for O'Donnell

The Tennessee senator is the first member of the Senate Republican leadership to appear with O'Donnell, according to an Alexander aide.

O'Donnell stunned and disappointed the GOP establishment when she beat Rep. Mike Castle in the Republican primary. Castle was considered a sure winner in the general election, but O'Donnell now trails her Democratic opponent Chris Coons by double digits.

On the issue of whether creationism should be taught in public schools, a highly skeptical O'Donnell questioned Coon's assertion that the First Amendment calls for the separation of church and state.

"The First Amendment does?" O'Donnell asked during the Tuesday morning debate. "Let me just clarify: You're telling me that the separation of church and state is found in the First Amendment?"

Watch the heated interaction, after the jump:
