Christine O'Donnell - Chris Coons debate: Bipartisanship
Christine O’Donnell began by noting: “I’ve had to fight my party to be here on this stage.”
Last month she stunned the Republican establishment in Delaware and nationwide by winning the GOP primary.
O'Donnell said she would reach across the aisle to work with Democrats if elected. She said she would try to convince Senate colleagues who have “lost their way” and fallen into bipartisanship.
Democrat Chris Coons dismissed those comments. He said that, as county executive in New Castle County, he has a long track record of working with members of both parties.
He was asked why Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid once refer to him as his “pet.”
“I’m nobody’s pet,” he said. “I’m going to be a bulldog for Delaware.”
O'Donnell then said that she would support some parts of the Obama administration's national security agenda.
