Coons campaign wastes no time labeling O'Donnell 'extreme'

So how happy is the campaign of New Castle County Executive Chris Coons (D) that his opponent this fall will be Tea Party-backed Christine O'Donnell?

Just look at the splash page of the candidate's website, which features a photo of O'Donnell under the heading, "It's Official: Meet our GOP Opponent: Christine O'Donnell."

The splash page labels Coons "a leader focused on creating jobs, not promoting bizarre conspiracy theories and an extreme social agenda."

It foreshadows just how harsh the Democratic message about O'Donnell will be this fall.

Public polls on a hypothetical general-election match-up between O'Donnell and Coons, taken before O'Donnell's primary win Tuesday, had the Democrat leading by double digits.
