Chris Coons: Republican O'Donnell Criticized Me For Rich Family (VIDEO)


[TPM SLIDESHOW: Christine O'Donnell: Anti-Masturbation Crusader. Witchcraft Dabbler. Republican Senate Nominee.]

"My family started a business," Coons said. "My stepfather started a business here in Newark, in the basement with his parents and along with much of my family and hundreds of hard-working Delawareans, that small business grew to be quite successful. And I thought that's what all of us were gonna try and do, and that's what I'd like to go and do in Washington, is to fight for America's small businesses, so that more families can have the experience of being successful, so that more kids can go to college, so that we can grow our way out of this recession, and frankly, I was somewhat surprised to have a Republican attacking me for the success of my family, and for the hard work that we have put into the community."

The TPM Poll Average gives Coons a lead of 56.2%-36.6%.
