Christine O’Donnell will not be running for U.S. Senate in 2014.

She sent her announcement out to supporters in an email.

The Tea Party favor upset congressman Mike Castles bid for Delaware’s senate seat vacated by Vice President Joe Biden in the republican primary only to lose to Democrat Chris Coons in the general election of 2010.

WBOC reports that neither the Democratic state party nor Coons’ campaign would comment on “a non-announcement.”

The email did not come as any surprise to John Fluharty, executive director of the state GOP, who noted that last week she told the Wilmington News Journal…that she would not jump into the race.

She told the paper that she’d rather slam her hand in a car door than run for public office again.
