The Lame Duck threat!
Cap and Trade hangs in the balance of Delaware Senate Race,
Christine O’Donnell could stop job-killing energy bill, Castle won’t
WILMINGTON, DE– As the US Senate GOP primary in Delaware heats up between Christine O’Donnell and Mike Castle, a new dynamic could bring national attention and national forces into the race.
“What separates this race from every other US Senate race is that the winner will be seated on November 3rd, rather than in January with the rest of the Senator-elects,” said Christine O’Donnell for US Senate spokesman Yates Walker. “That fact alone makes this race arguably the most important Senate race in 2010.”
With the Democrats in Congress and in the White House expecting defeat in the November mid-term elections, many on the left are already discussing a full court press in the “lame duck” session to pass major legislation, including Cap and Trade, according to the Wall Street Journal. (1)
“There’s nothing more dangerous for American prosperity than Democrats with nothing to lose,” continued Walker. “Christine O’Donnell will provide the stopgap for leftwing lunacy in the lame duck session.”
O’Donnell has pledged to vote against the “job-killing” Cap and Trade bill. Rep. Mike Castle was one of eight Republicans to vote for the Waxman-Markey sponsored Cap and Trade bill in 2009.(2) The bill remains stalled in the Senate, where Castle, if elected, could help push it over the finish line.
“Passing Cap and Trade would throw sand into the gears of the American economy,” said Christine O’Donnell. “It would cripple our already struggling markets, taxing goods and services at every point of production and consumption. This bill would kill jobs and drive up prices on everything from peanuts to gasoline.”
Rising in the polls, Christine O’Donnell has taken the offensive against her opponent Mike Castle’s voting record.(3) Castle was rated one of the most liberal Republicans in Congress by the American Conservative Union.
“I will continue to hold Mike Castle to account for his liberal voting record,” said O’Donnell. “He has already voted for Cap and Tax, and he will do it again.”
