Former Delaware Republican senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell is considering an invitation to participate in Dancing With the Stars, reports the Associated Press.

But it’s unclear if the conservative, who lost to Democrat Chris Coons in the November 2010 midterm elections, will become a contestant on the show. The Tea Party member implied in a Facebook status update that writing a book takes priority over Dancing With the Stars.

“I just got the Official ‘Ask’ from Dancing With The Stars !!” O’Donnell wrote on her Facebook page Monday. “Although I am utterly flattered, my initial thought was to decline, as 2 year old nephew has more rhythm than me, and my two left feet!! However Eileen thinks i should do it. What do you think?”

Later, O’Donnell updated her Facebook and Twitter pages and wrote, “The facebook comments about Dancing w The Stars list great pros and cons. Thank you for your input. Still undecided. Book comes first.”

More than 400 people have commented on these two Facebook updates, both of which were published Monday.

Bristol Palin, the daughter of conservative former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was a finalist in last season’s Dancing With the Stars.
