Christine O’Donnell Regrets ‘Witch Ad’ In New Book

Tea-party backed former Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell has released her new memoir, admitting that her “I am not a witch” ad was not a good move.

The Delaware Republican who lost the 2010 Senate election called this her “lowest moment” in her new memoir Troublemaker: Let’s Do What It Takes to Make America Great Again. The book, from St. Martin’s Press, comes out out on Tuesday.

The Associated Press has more: “She says she never wanted to make the ad – which was prompted by questions about a statement she had made on a late-night talk show years earlier – and was surprised when it showed up on the Internet. She blames an insistent media consultant but also her own inability to put her foot down.” (Via Politico)
