The Tea Party favorite who may have cost Republicans a Senate seat won’t rule out another run for office.
Christine O’Donnell won’t rule out making another run for office. The former Delaware Senate candidate told Jay Leno during an appearance on the “Tonight Show” Wednesday that she wants to keep her options open.
“I don’t know if I’d run again,” she said. “I’d like to keep that option open.”
For the time being, O’Donnell said she wanted to remain in politics as an issue advocate. “Whatever I do, I want to be able to advocate for those issues,” she said.
O’Donnell mentioned ending the estate tax, which is set to kick in at a high rate in 2011, as one issue she is interested in.
But she has been getting job offers since her Senate bid failed.
“The offers have been interesting,” O’Donnell said. “Anything from a book deal to a reality show.”
She was “not necessarily interested” in the reality show offer unless it was a “watchdog-type show,” she said, noting she ran a 30-minute TV ad during the campaign. “I would like to do something like that.”
Leno suggested she become a Fox News pundit.
O’Donnell said she “did the pundit thing.”
“That’s what got me in trouble,” she added.
