Earlier on ABC's Good Morning America, O'Donnell dismissed the criticisms over her murky past as just crying over spilled milk by Rove and other establishment GOPers.

"I think he's saying he's one of the so-called experts whose credibility was hurt last night," O'Donnell said.

O'Donnell has a lot of baggage from her history as a conservative activist, and trails Democrat Chris Coons in a Senate race that Republicans thought was theirs for the taking. O'Donnell's nomination has created deep divisions between the Republican Party and right-wing activists.

Rove responded to O'Donnell today on Fox. "Look, she believes she's going to win," he said. "That is what a candidate ought to believe."

Watch:

The latest PPP poll of the Delaware Senate race shows Democrat Chris Coons leading O'Donnell 50-34.
