Republican political figure and tea-party favorite Christine O'Donnell says she's backing Mitt Romney's presidential bid.

O'Donnell cites executive experience as part of her reason for endorsing Romney. She announced her decision Tuesday night during an interview on Fox News Channel.

O'Donnell gained national attention in 2010 with her bid for a Senate seat from Delaware. With tea party backing, she defeated an established Republican for the party's nomination, former governor and longtime congressman Mike Castle. She then lost the general election to Democrat Chris Coons by a margin of 17 percentage points.

O'Donnell may be best known nationally for a campaign commercial in which she declared "I'm not a witch," a response to a statement she'd made years earlier in which she said she'd dabbled in witchcraft.

One suspects an endorsement from this clown would be a death notice for anyone running for any office...she has no more credibility than a cinder block wall!! As a shadow face for ultra-right wing teavangelicals, she has no place in running the business of the US government. What we need in the White House is someone who understands that government does the business of governing and is not a religious outcropping of Christianity or any other religious belief.
