Christine O'Donnell - Chris Coons debate: Experience

October 13, 2010 |  6:13 pm

Chris Coons, in his closing remarks, said Christine O’Donnell was good at running for office, but not at running any thing. He then went on to tout his own record as a county executive.

What Delaware needed, he said, was a senator with “real hands-on experience.” He can offer the state such experience, he said.

He also said that, unlike his opponent, Christine O’Donnell, he has lengthy experience in the private and public sector.

The candidates, who never flagged in energy during the 90-minute contest, looked like they could have continued debating the issues before the audience at the University of Delaware. The moderators, however, announced the evening was over.

They will debate again next week.
