Skip to comments.Akin Refuse to Drop Out Of Senate Race
Posted on 09/25/2012 6:44:47 PM PDT by katiedidit1
Akin told a crowd of supporters, In August I was given a trust , a trust to replace a senator that had not represented Missouri or our best interests. He added, I have one purpose going into November and thats replacing Claire McCaskill.
As the deadline to withdraw from the November general election ballot passed, Missouris Republican party issued a statement saying it will support Akin along with all the other Republican nominees on the ballot.

Is anyone surprised???
Alright, did this guy seriously also denounce his statement, that a woman’s body prevents pregnancy in cases of rape? If not, the Missouri race is in a deep trash bin. Alright, I am not even a woman, but I wonder what a woman would think if he thinks that a pregnant woman who asked for an abortion and reported rape, somehow lied because rape shouldn’t impregnate, rape can do everything from cause pregnancy to spread STDs, and that’s a serious issue. A little word of advice for a political candidate: stick to saying that instances of rape justify an exception to the abortion rule, rather than make up something that is totally refuted by science.
Monday former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich predicted major GOP funding for Akin would return by mid-October. Tuesday, conservative commentator and author Phyllis Schlafly of St. Louis agreed. Romney needs Missouri and to try to split the ticket like this Romney is going to be the chief loser on that, she said during an Akin rally in downtown St. Louis.
An independent organization that supports conservative candidates with advertising on cable, radio and the web announced its support for Akin. The ads will begin airing Thursday. The Freedom Defense Fund is promising a $250,000 expenditure independent of the Akin campaign. The political action committee describes itself as dedicated to the protection of liberty from big government advocates of either party. Under federal law the FDF cannot discuss or coordinate its efforts with the nominees staff.
You understand this isn’t what the race is about? This race is about ObamaClaire, and defeating her, and her obama butt-kissing agenda. What Todd said is extremely minor, irrelevant and past.
Todd can win this if we can change the message from “Todd is an idiot” to “Claire is Obama’s handmaiden”. Now that the deadline for hit to WITHDRAW DAMMIT!!, perhaps we can actually discuss policy differences between the candidates?
hit = him
There is nothing akin can do to unsay his words and his gynecological musings may cause many women and independents to hold their nose and vote for the democrat.
The greater fallout would be the same voters protesting with their vote against anyone helping him up and down ticket.
He said he would stay and stay he did.
Alright RNC, Cough up the Bucks.
The goal is getting out Claire.
GO TODD GO!!!!!
RNC Do you really want Claire as a Senator?
She is bragging how she is the 50% Senator.
Down the Middle AFTER VOTING FOR OBAMA CARE.
Enough already, Fund our Candidate and stop
crying, you all will get over it.

LOL! After hearing the same meme FROM the GOP about their liberal candidate for president... it's funny to hear the words pointed back at them.
You said it YOMO! you would think the RNC is supporting Claire! start difference between Akin and Scare McCackles.
"Yeah doc (yawn), I wuz raped alright. I wuz, uh, too embarrassed to report it and besides, I wuz too drunk to really remember much. Anyway, I'm allowed to get an abortion because I wuz raped, so gimme my abortion."
/Democrat rape loophole you can drive a truck through
There they are!
he backtracked within minutes I think.
AT least he didn’t call himself “eye candy”, the MSM would have really gone after him then
I thought he already did that..why is thes still an issue
This guy was a long-term congressman with a splendid conservative record.
He got hammered for ONE minor gaffe. And the RINO establishment all jumped on the Democrat express and helped bash him.
What gets me is that there is still anyone in FreeRepublic who falls for that trash.
As for Reince Preibus of the RNC, who is denying him funding, **** him and the horse he rode in on.
SUPPORT THE CONSERVATIVE! He has one of the best records of any Republican in the House.
Great to hear that a couple of TRUE and fearless conservatives with concrete achievements under their belts like Newt Gingrich and Phyllis Schlafly are backing the only TRUE conservative in this race, a truer conservative than is on our presidential ticket, Todd Akin.
I absolutely cannot stand the way the Republicans form a circular firing squad instead of circling the wagons.
