US senator John McCain's daughter said today that Delaware Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell, a Tea Party favourite, is "seen as a nut job".
Christine O'Donnell "is making a mockery of running for public office", Meghan McCain said of her father's fellow Republican, who recently ran an ad declaring: "I'm not a witch."
Appearing on ABC's This Week, McCain said O'Donnell, who won the Senate nomination in Delaware, "has no real history, no real success in any kind of business".
"And what that sends to my generation is (the message that) one day, you can just wake up and run for Senate, no matter how [much of a] lack of experience you have," said McCain, 26, author of the new book, Dirty Sexy Politics.[...]
"It scares me for a lot of reasons, and I just know in my group of friends, it just turns people off, because she's seen as a nut job," McCain said.
