Sen. Roy Blunt pledges to work for Rep. Todd Akin's election
And so they start to fall in line......
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A month after calling on Congressman Todd Akin to drop out of Missouri's U.S. Senate race, the state's incumbent Republican senator now says he'll work for Akin's election.
Sen. Roy Blunt was among several leading Missouri Republicans who urged Akin in August to quit his challenge to Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. The pressure followed Akin's televised comment that women's bodies can avert pregnancy from what he called "legitimate rape."
Akin has remained in the race and was campaigning Tuesday when a final deadline for him to withdraw came and went.
1. Claire is so lucky despite her own stench skunks live in Missouri that smell 10X worse.
"There is no joy casting a vote for Claire" a direct quote from life long Missouri Democratic voter. For me I will vote for someone (Claire) I detest only slightly less than Warren Hearnes. Man pictured in your profile Harry Truman once said only two people he detested were Richard Nixon and Warren Hearnes. Todd Akin if elected to the Senate pales any RW nut job there or even considered for elected office on national level. Akin is a living and potential desecration to the Senate.
