Castle Will Not Endorse O'Donnell

More

The Hill's Shane D'Aprile reported late last night that Rep. Mike Castle will not endorse Christine O'Donnell. Castle, an established, moderate Republican, was whupped by Tea Partier and perennial candidate O'Donnell in yesterday's Republican Senate primary in Delaware. D'Aprile spoke to a Castle campaign source who relayed the congressman's decision not to endorse, as well as his resignation to his loss:

After the stunning primary loss, Castle's campaign also said the longtime congressman is not interested in waging a write in bid this November.

In Alaska, Sen Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) is contemplating an independent write in campaign after she lost to Tea Party backed Joe Miller in the August GOP primary.

As to whether the national party would back O'Donnell, a Castle campaign source said the campaign has no knowledge of their thinking but said "they should save their money."
