O'Donnell loses to Coons in Delaware

From the NBC News political team
Her unforgettable 'I'm not a witch' ad earned her national press attention, but it wasn't enough to push Christine O'Donnell to victory in the Delaware Senate race.

NBC News projects that the insurgent Tea Party-backed Republican was defeated, as expected, by Democrat Chris Coons.

Republicans in the Northeast can celebrate one Senate victory though. NBC News projects that Republican Kelly Ayotte is the winner of the New Hampshire Senate race.
