N.J. governor: Del. ‘missed opportunity’ for Senate

November 8, 2010

WASHINGTON (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Sunday said the Senate race in Delaware was “a missed opportunity” for his fellow Republicans to pick up the seat long held by Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

“Tea party” favorite Christine O’Donnell won the GOP nomination in an upset over moderate Rep. Michael N. Castle, but she lost the general election Tuesday to Democrat Chris Coons.

Mr. Christie said he was proud to have endorsed Mr. Castle.

Ms. O’Donnell ran a nontraditional campaign that opened with a TV ad saying, “I’m not a witch.” National Republicans had hoped the race would help them win a majority in the Senate.

Mr. Christie told NBC’s “Meet the Press,” “I think Delaware was a missed opportunity to have a really good U.S. senator.”
