Todd Akin: ‘I’m Not Getting Out’

You have to give him points for consistency at least. Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin said on Monday that he’s “totally in” the Senate race despite the national firestorm over his “legitimate rape” comments last month. Republicans have until Sept. 25 to force Akin to drop out—although Akin said he believes money will pour into the race after the deadline passes, despite that the national GOP has abandoned him. “I’m not getting out,” Akin insisted, saying that he has heard widespread support to fight incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill.
