She announced her candidacy for U.S. Senate, Wednesday, March 10, at the University of Delaware.

O’Donnell said she would carry the Reagan revolution into the 21st century. She also vowed to cut spending, shrink the deficit and lower taxes.

O’Donnell, who unsuccessfully ran for the Senate in 2006 and 2008, could force a Republican primary against Rep. Mike Castle, who announced last year his bid for the seat.

She said she has immense grassroots support and questioned why Castle isn’t remaining in the House of Representatives where he has seniority and influence.

“We will have all the resources we need to win in September and beyond,” she said.

Not so fast, says O’Donnell’s former assistant campaign manager David Keegan.

He’s threatened to out O’Donnell concerning debts she owes to campaign workers and companies. In 2008, O’Donnell won the Republican nomination to run against then-Sen. Joe Biden. State Republicans will make their nominations at a Saturday, May 15 state convention at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center.
