Senator O’Donnell? Now the Coons campaign in Delaware is saying turnout lower ‘than we’re comfortable with.’

Could we be seeing a Senator Christine O’Donnell in the making? Yeah, I doubt it — but in a superwave scenario anything is possible. But I also doubt that this Democratic strategy of trying to scare people into going to the polls is smart politics. And to put the most charitable spin on it, that seems to be what’s going on:

In a noon email alert to supporters, Coons campaign manager Christy Gleason said close monitoring of voter turnout in the state’s 41 representative districts showed “lower turnout in New Castle and Kent counties than we’re comfortable with.”

To win, Mr. Coons will have to get heavy support from Democrats and independents in New Castle, the state’s most populous county. In the primary, Ms. O’Donnell drew heavy support from the state’s other two counties, Kent and Sussex, which skew more to the right.
