Surprise Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell cites an important source for her decision to have stayed in a Senate race that few people think she can win: God hasn't let her quit.
In a news segment with the Christian Broadcasting Network
-- taped before
her recently announced decision to stop doing national media interviews -- O'Donnell talked about how her Republican primary battle against Rep. Mike Castle seemed like such a long shot, and how she found the strength to keep going.
"God continued to strengthen and empower us, when you know his strength is perfected in our weakness, and that's exciting," said O'Donnell. "Because you see that if it weren't for faith, when all logic said it's time to quit, we pursued, we marched on, because we knew God was not releasing us to quit. And now, with such an important lame duck session, you realize why we were to endure all that stuff."
