John Cornyn Doesn't Defend Christine O'Donnell

John Cornyn likes to keep things nice and general when speaking about Christine O'Donnell's candidacy:
"All of those issues [regarding O'Donnell's educational history]are litigated in every single campaign, obviously being candid and truthful is important, but I don't know enough about the details," Cornyn told TPM. "I'm not stating an opinion on that particular report, I'm just talking generally."

Cornyn (R-TX) repeated his line from primary night when O'Donnell defeated Rep. Mike Castle that the NRSC must make "hard decisions about how to allocate resources."

"It's no secret that I believed Mike Castle would have won that race handily," Cornyn said. "We will be supporting Christine O'Donnell as appropriate if that race is competitive. Right now it looks like it is not as competitive as other places around the country."
So, he's not necessarily jumping to her defense.

I can't say that I blame him...
