Daily Fix Poll: What should the GOP do with Christine O'Donnell?
By Aaron Blake
Republicans today are dealing with an unwelcome reality in Delaware: the candidate they all so vociferously opposed and said wasn't qualified to run for the state's open Senate seat -- Christine O'Donnell -- is now their nominee.
What do they do now?
Already, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) has voiced support and National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn (R) said today that his committee will send her a $42,000 check and support her. (A summary of the GOP reactions can be found here.)
The reconciliation process could be especially difficult for the state GOP, which in the lead-up to her win over Rep. Mike Castle (R) had been the most outspoken at how unqualified and ethically challenged O'Donnell was.
If you were a GOP leader, what would you do with O'Donnell?
