The were all good conservative candidates. And Akin won out. Now we're finding out exactly why McCaskill wanted to run against him in the first place.
Had the GOP continued to support Akin after his ill-informed comment, he would still be leading McCaskill by a mile.
Let's place blame where blame is due, shall we? If Akin hadn't made his foolish and uninformed comment to begin with then the GOP leadership wouldn't have seen the need to distance themselves from him. The McCaskill would have had to limp along with the remaining Akin comments that are making up the bulk of her ads.
This was a winnable seat. It looks like Akin is going to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. The blame for that doesn't lie with me or the national GOP. It lies with Todd Akin.
If Akin loses this one, according to local radio pollsters, it will be due to the defection of Republican suburban soccer moms to the leave blank option or McCaskill — not Independent women but Republican women.
Is there anything that you would like to say to them to get them to vote the right way and put Akin into that office???
Your comments challenged me to make a stand.
So I just wrote another check to the Akin campaign. Put a stamp on the envelope and I’m mailing it today.
For any one else who wants to see McCaskill defeated and chooses to mail their contribution.......
