(Newser) – Mike Castle will not be endorsing Christine O'Donnell for the Senate, Politico reports. But O'Donnell doesn't care, as she told Fox and Friends on today's morning show victory lap. Watch all three videos in the gallery. Highlights:

  • Fox and Friends: "Just like my Republican opponent was an Obama Republican, we have a lot of Reagan Democrats here in Delaware who are thrilled about the Palin endorsement. But it's not even, 'She has Palin. Why would I need Mike Castle?' I have the support of the people here in Delaware and that's who I'm counting on to win this general election."

  • Good Morning America: "Everything that [Karl Rove] is saying is un-factual. And it's a shame because he is the same so-called political guru that predicted I wasn't going to win. And we won and we won big. So I think, again, he is eating some humble pie and he is just trying to restore his reputation."
  • Today: On the possibility that she will not get any money from the National Republican Party, she says, "We're gonna get the money that we need. We won this election with just barely a tenth of what my opponent had already raised. We got a lot of phone calls last night from some other heavy-hitters who assured me that they will make sure that we get what we need."
