GOP Returning To Akin Camp

Just weeks after a massive bloc of the GOP publicly abandoned Missouri GOP Senate challenger Todd Akin, there are signs that the party is willing to work with him on his campaign to defeat incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat.

“Friends, I just released this joint statement with Rick Santorum on our support for Todd Akin in Missouri. Please share! This seat is critical to winning control of the Senate,” wrote Sen. Jim DeMint on Facebook.

“If Republicans are to win back the Senate and stop President Obama’s liberal agenda, we must defeat Senator Claire McCaskill in Missouri. Her support of President Obama’s job-killing, big-spending policies are sending our country into an economic abyss. And her passionate support of Obamacare is ensuring healthcare costs go up while quality of care goes down.
