"Americans want our leaders to defend our values, our culture our legacy of liberty and our way of life, not apologize and tear her down," O'Donnell said. "In the diners and at the pig roasts, in the town halls and the church halls I hear people embrace for the first time a vibrant conversation about American values. They reject the narrative that's been imposed on them from the DC cocktail crowd."
On Saturday O'Donnell canceled two scheduled appearances on national Sunday news shows "Face the Nation" on CBS and "Fox News Sunday."
Campaign spokeswoman Diana Banister told The Associated Press that O'Donnell was returning to Delaware to attend church events in a key county.
"Tomorrow the priorities are back in Delaware. Those are people who supported her, who were very helpful to her in the campaign, and she feels obligated to be there and thank them."
