Delaware GOP Chairman: ‘Time to Come Together and Unite’

No one fought harder to defeat Christine O’Donnell than the Delaware Republican Party.

But the conservative marketing consultant won the GOP Senate primary this week, and state party Chairman Tom Ross issued a statement Thursday afternoon calling for party unity. It is worth noting that Ross made no specific reference to the O’Donnell victory.

“After a hard fought primary it is time to come together and unite over our shared principles and determination to rescue our economy from the destructive policies advanced by Democrats,” he said.

“The Delaware Republican Party plans on doing what it does every election year — working hard for our candidates. We have reached out to the [national Republican campaign committees] to ensure that our candidates have as much support as possible,” he continued. “The winds of change are blowing hard in Delaware and together we can take our state and country back. I will honor my commitment to our party’s grassroots activists and continue to serve as Chairman of the Republican Party of Delaware.”

Last week, Ross said O’Donnell could not win an election for dog catcher.
