O'Donnell said she did not know when she would make a decision about her campaign, but said the state GOP needed to mend fences. Many north-state Republicans were upset when O'Donnell, a Tea Party activist, beat former Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.) in the Senate primary.
“We have to rebuild the foundation in the party,” O’Donnell said.
Coons went on to defeat O'Donnell by 17 percent in the election to fill the seat vacated by Vice President Biden.
If O'Donnell does decide to re-enter the race, she'll do so with a depleted war chest. According to the News Journal, her campaign committee raised less than $20,000 last year and reports just $7,145 in cash on hand. By contrast, Coons has raised $1.5 million so far this year, and his campaign committee reported $2 million cash-on-hand.
