This Week's Podcast: A Startling End To The Primary Season In Delaware

Of all the surprises of this year's primary season, none was bigger, or probably more significant, than Christine O'Donnell's victory last week over establishment favorite Mike Castle in Delaware.

We were still catching our breath by the time we recorded this week's podcast.

This week's episode of "It's All Politics" also features the results in New Hampshire, where Kelly Ayotte squeaked through the GOP Senate primary; New York, where Carl Paladino won the right to face Andrew Cuomo in November for governor and where Charlie Rangel showed he had more problems with the House ethics committee than with Democratic voters of the 15th CD; and in Wisconsin, where Republican Scott Walker has a good shot at becoming the state's next governor.
