A dance party may be in the future for tea party darling Christine O'Donnell.

The Delaware Republican says she's been invited to be a contestant the TV show "Dancing with the Stars," but she's not sure if she'll do it.

O'Donnell, who lost a bid for U.S. Senate last year to Democrat Chris Coons, says her initial reaction was to say no, but others are encouraging her to do it. She's soliciting opinions on her Facebook page.

O'Donnell writes that she's flattered, but says she has two left feet and her 2-year-old nephew has more rhythm than she does. She says she is undecided, but her book comes first.
