In a television advertisement directed at Delaware voters, Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell reemphasizes the fact that she is not a witch.
A recent Rasmussen Reports poll on the Senate race in Delaware reflects support for Democrat Chris Coons at 49 percent and for Republican Christine O'Donnell at 40 percent.
The Delaware race has come to represent the tenacity of the Tea Party, after longtime Republican Congressman Mike Castle lost to Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell in the Republican primary.
O'Donnell has since come under significant pressure for comments she made years ago on her opposition to masturbation and on her dabbling in witchcraft while in high school.
The witchcraft commentary is not a message that resonates well with her conservative Christian base. Now, speaking to her supporters and to the larger voting populace in Delaware, Christine O'Donnell has released a television commercial that opens up with her reassurance that she is not a witch.
"I'm not a witch," O'Donnell says. "I'm nothing you've heard. I'm you."
O'Donnell is positioned before a neutral dark blue background, and we are soothed further with a piano riff in the background.
"None of us are perfect," she continues. "But none of us can be happy with what we see all around us."
The midterm elections are a month away, and Delaware does not appear to have a clear winner. However, O'Donnell believes that God is keeping her in the race.
