Christine O'Donnell - Chris Coons debate: Socialism
Critics, including Republican Christine O’Donnell, have suggested it shows his views on government. She made the charge in the debate.
Coons said the allegation was not true.
The essay, he said, was a joke -– written when he was graduating from college. Anyone reading the essay would see it was a joke, he said.
Coons, who is balding, got one of the bigger laughs of the evening when he alluded to his head, saying, “I have always been a clean-shaven capitalist.”
