The message to supporters from Delaware’s new Senator-elect

Delaware Senator-elect Chris Coons decided to skip the morning network news shows so that he could thank supporters in Wilmington’s famous Libby’s restaurant.


Coons defeated Christine O”Donnell by the double digit margin that many of the polls had predicted he would.  Coons will be sworn-in when the senate comes back from their current recess on November 15th.
