Campaigning in Wilmington ahead of Tuesday's primary where Tea Party-backed Christine O'Donnell is riding some last-minute momentum courtesy of endorsements from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), the longtime congressman told The Hill he's taking nothing for granted.

Castle said Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) phoned him after her stunning primary loss at the hands of Tea Party-backed Joe Miller with a warning.

"She told me to be careful, because [The Tea Party Express] will come at me with everything they've got," Castle recounted. "They're certainly not above misrepresentation."
