Michelle Rollins is no loser... and she's not going to become one now

So the state GOP's biggest hope for dethroning Tom Carper has decided not to run, huh? No surprise down here. Face it, Rollins married well, into money and politics, sits on a pretty darn good fortune, and had a lot of backing among her party's faithful. But none of it means she could have beaten Carper.

The junior Senator from Delaware is among the most popular politicians the first state has ever seen. Delaware has been voting solidly Democratic over the last few years, at least when it comes to the statewide elections. So while Rollins would have probably won the vote here in lovely Sussex, the Carper Machine would have rolled over her up north. Why spend the money and waste the time in an effort that'll prove to be fruitless about a year from now? It just isn't good business. Something that Ms. Rollins apparently knows a little about. Let Mike Protack crash and burn. Just as long as he doesn't crash in his real job.

Wrong on Carper, his is considered a DINO by many..his votes reflect that too.
