O’Donnell’s PAC To Fight Estate Tax And Obamacare


O'Donnell's PAC to fight estate tax and ObamacareTea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell isn't letting a midterm loss in the Delaware Senate race keep her out of the political arena.

O'Donnell, the embattled Republican who lost to Senator-elect Chris Coons (D-Del.) last month, has announced that she is in the process of forming an issue-oriented Political Action Committee (PAC), according to CBS News. The group is tentatively titled ChristinePAC, following in the footsteps of Sarah Palin's SarahPAC, which the former Alaska governor formed after falling short in her vice presidential bid in 2008.

O'Donnell said that her PAC will focus on specific issues rather than backing candidates. She said her first goals are to advocate for the repeals of the estate tax and Obamacare. She is also against the extension of unemployment benefits, which she linked with two other events that occurred this week.

"Tragedy comes in threes. Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards' passing and Barack Obama's announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits," she said, quoted by the news provider.

The Associated Press reports that O'Donnell has received a book deal from St. Martin's Press. The publication, which will address her Senate campaign and the political process, is scheduled for release in August 2011.
