Christine O’Donnell Compares Herself To Ronald Reagan (VIDEO)

Christine O’Donnell isn’t sweating the national Republicans who won’t be helping her Delaware Senate bid this fall, because, after all, Ronald Reagan was once a pariah too.

“They also said that Ronald Reagan wasn’t electable,” O’Donnell said this morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America. She called the GOP’s whisper campaign against her “Republican cannibalism.”

The perennial candidate who has never held political office said she doesn’t need the NRSC’s help, and believes she can win by raising just $1 million. The Tea Party Express made an appeal to supporters today for cash to help O’Donnell after the GOP’s abandonment.She said Karl Rove, who trashed her last night on Fox News, is eating “some humble pie.”

“Everything that he is saying is un-factual. And it’s a shame because he is the same so-called political guru that predicted I wasn’t going to win. And we won and we won big,” O’Donnell said.

Appearing on Fox News, O’Donnell said her Republican rival Rep. Mike Castle, defeated after holding a strong lead all year, supported the Democrats more frequently than his own party. For his part, Castle is not endorsing O’Donnell. She said on Fox that she doesn’t need him, because she has Sarah Palin.

O’Donnell also has been making more appeals to those “Hillary Democrats” she said she’s been winning over. The Republicans were circulating a video of O’Donnell telling CNN, “I would love Hillary Clinton’s endorsement.”
