WILMINGTON, Del., Nov. 1 (UPI) -- The campaign of Christine O'Donnell, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Delaware, said a public access station "forgot" to run a 24-minute ad.

The O'Donnell campaign said the lengthy ad, which is styled after a documentary and touts the candidate's connection with Delaware natives, was supposed to run Sunday night and Monday morning, but public access Channel 28 "forgot" to run the ad both times, The Washington Post reported Monday.

"We are told Channel 28 'forgot' to air it ... both times ... even though we paid for the time slot last week," O'Donnell posted to her Twitter account Monday.

The ad is on the schedule again for an 11:30 p.m. Monday viewing and several time slots Tuesday. The campaign said they are also working to have the ad aired on other stations Tuesday.

The Post said it was unable to reach station officials for comment.
