NRSC Takes A Fresh Look At Todd Akin

With the deadline passed for Todd Akin to drop out of the Missouri Senate race, the National Republican Senatorial Committee says it’s taking a fresh look at the contest.

“There is no question that for Missourians who believe we need to stop the reckless Washington spending, rein-in the role of government in people’s lives, and finally focus on growing jobs in this country that Todd Akin is a far more preferable candidate than liberal Senator Claire McCaskill,” NRSC Executive Director Rob Jesmer said in a statement.  “As with every Republican Senate candidate, we hope Todd Akin wins in November and we will continue to monitor this race closely in the days ahead.”
