Missouri Senate Candidate Todd Akin on Tuesday brushed off suggestions that remarks he made in August regarding “legitimate rape” would hurt his party come November.

“I don’t believe that the comments I’ve made doom the entire Republican Party,” Akin told Jamie Allman on 97.1 FM talk radio in St. Louis.

Akin also noted that the race in Missouri has changed and that, at least according to his view, his bid for the Senate now has more appeal from independent voters who look down upon establishment figures such as “party bosses.”
