From the O’Donnell campaign:

Wilmington, DE – An Election Eve television outreach by Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell was not aired as scheduled, even though the campaign paid for the advertising last week. O’Donnell campaign spokesman Doug Sachtleben offered the following statement:

“It’s still unclear as to why the local cable channel failed to air the half-hour long special. Our hope is that this is not another case of the liberal media or political dirty tricks trying to silence Christine’s message to the voters of Delaware.

“Christine announced the broadcast during yesterday’s rally in Wilmington, and it was scheduled to run at 11:30 p.m. Sunday and again at 10 a.m. today. But, the channel did not air the powerful ad at either scheduled time. We are very disappointed that an ad, which the campaign paid for last week, was not aired as scheduled.”

    Thanks for posting the ad. I linked to you on TCL FB and posted the ad. This was an obvious attempt to silence Ms. O’Donnell. I sure hope she can pull this election off.

    I guess an independant thinker just scares the crap out of Democratic leaders and Republican leaders alike, so their media flunkies take her money and then don’t deliver their part of the bargain. You don’t “forget” the kind of money THAT ad cost! Of course, I’m sure they’ll offer to return her money. I just hope she’s a victorious candidate who them sues the living hell out of them.

    Victorious is the key word Gorges. I hope she does scare the crap out of them. I hope we all do.

    Well done Robot. The Capcha is glitchy.

      Hmmm. I had to re-comment at T Christopher’s site today. It didn’t accept the captcha. Thought it was me. I’ll be paying closer attention next time.
