Christine O’Donnell Claims Divine Mandate for Candidacy

Photo Courtesy - Christine2010 [dot] com(DOVER, Del.) -- Delaware Republican Christine O’Donnell says “God is the reason” that she’s running for U.S. Senate and that prayer has played “a direct role in this campaign.”

“I know that God has called me to this,” she told the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody in an interview to be aired Tuesday on The 700 Club program.

“If I didn’t believe that there were a cause greater than myself worth fighting for, if I didn’t believe that it takes a complete dying of self to make things right in this election cycle I would not be running,” she told CBN. “When you die to yourself you rely on a power greater than yourself, so prayer is what’s gotten us all through.”

O’Donnell, who has been trailing Democrat Chris Coons, also directly credits prayer with helping her narrow the gap in some recent polls.

O’Donnell’s outspokenness on matters of faith and her punditry on several television talk shows during the 1990s, which she has since described as a “ministry opportunity,” have garnered national attention during the campaign.
