On the eve of the election, Christine O'Donnell has purchased 30 minutes of air time for a documentary-style campaign video. According to O'Donnell's website, the piece will air locally in Delaware at 10 am and 3 pm today and Tuesday. The campaign calls it "the Inspiring TV show about Delawareans," while Politico's Ben Smith describes it as "Obama-style." It's officially named "We the People."

National Review has some snippets from a statement by campaign spokesman Doug Sachtleben.
“With Christine surging in the polls and her opponent desperately calling in the Vice-President, the O’Donnell campaign is taking its case straight to the voters by airing a half-hour video feature on Delaware cable channel 28 and WBOC-TV,” said campaign spokesman Doug Sachtleben in a statement.
“Delawareans are flocking to the O’Donnell campaign because Christine is connecting with voters,” he added. “This video takes viewers past the filters of the mainstream media and gives a powerful look at a candidate who understands the struggles and opportunities that Delaware families are facing.”
In a recent development, one of the Delaware TV stations set to air the video "forget" to do so. You can get the whole story, along with O'Donnell's reaction, here.
