O'Donnell unlikely to get national party money

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Christine O'Donnell won the Delaware GOP Senate primary Tuesday."]

(CNN) – Do not expect national Republicans to rally around Christine O'Donnell and infuse much needed campaign cash into her campaign for Delaware's open Senate seat. The Tea Party favorite upset establishment backed Rep. Mike Castle Tuesday evening, and GOP officials are concerned that O'Donnell has no chance of winning the seat – once held by Vice President Biden for 26 years – in November.

"Until she demonstrates some viability in the polls we are not going to have any money for her," a top Republican official told CNN. "It is now incumbent on Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint and the Tea Party Express to help support her. They got her here. Now make it happen."

    Oh, let these yokels have their day in the sun. Thinking people will save us from these people who are scared/angry about a black man being the boss... Big deal, you won a primary, can't wait to see her debate and use god, guns and god like 500 times instead of answering the question... Just ask Palin, if you are getting your bump from that quitting loser then you are on the road to nowhere...

    Oh my goodness you should read all the boo-hooing tea partiers are doing on the blogs over this. Well, I've got news for you conservatives, you keep saying "we'll do it without you," well, this is what it looks like.

    She will get Republican money because they want to have a Republican senator from Delaware no matter what the cost. The will 'blite the bullet ' and give her money.

    The Tea Party Express will want to have another Republican elected and they do have money to give to her to help her win.

    Those are just the facts.
