Grayson, O’Donnell Out, Rubio In
Posted on Nov 2, 2010
The tea party movement took a hit and made a big score, respectively, in the defeat of Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell in Delaware and Marco Rubio’s Senate victory in Florida over Gov. Charlie Crist. Also out in Florida is Rep. Alan Grayson, who had been the first Democrat to be elected to the House from his district in 26 years, according to the Orlando Sentinel. —KA
The Washington Post:
O’Donnell lost to Democrat Chris Coons in the battle for the seat that had been held by Vice President Joe Biden. She had been criticized for her lack of experience and spotty financial history, and was plagued by a videotape from years ago in which she said she “dabbled” in witchcraft.
Rubio defeated independent Gov. Charlie Crist and Democrat Kendrick Meek.
