Source: STL Post-dispatch

A month after describing Akin's ongoing Senate run as "tragically unfortunate," former Sen. Christopher "Kit" Bond issued a statement today saying he supported Akin's bid for the Senate and referred to the battle for Senate control as the reason why.

"Todd's comments were unacceptable but he's apologized, I believe his regret is sincere, and it is time to focus on the national stakes in this election," Bond said.

"Todd can win and I'll be doing what I can to help ensure the Democrats that gave us big government and job-killing policies like ObamaCare don't continue controlling the U.S. Senate," Bond added.
