Verona, PA -- U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) and former U.S. Senator and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum issued the following joint statement regarding their support of Todd Akin for the U.S. Senate in Missouri:

ES:) will you send this to the MO list? DeMint, Santorum, Huckabee, Gingrich, Sen. Blunt are all with Akin now.
Todd Akin is a principled conservative who is committed to winning and fighting for freedom in the U.S. Senate. Todd will work to stop reckless spending, stop the out of control debt, repeal the government takeover of healthcare, support our military and defend life at every stage.
“We support Todd Akin and hope freedom-loving Americans in Missouri and around the country will join us so we can save our country from fiscal collapse,” concluded Santorum and DeMint.
Well, that makes Newt Gingrich and now Rick Santorum.
MO must go for Akin.
Like Newt says, McCaskill is a full scale obama hack and Harry Reid is a disgrace in the US Senate.
Get rid of him as Majority Leader.
There is no turning back now. The GOP needs to get on board. If the lib media puts them on the spot about Akin’s past (wacko) rape/pregnancy theories, just hit back with Obama’s support for infanticide. They will shut right up.
Maybe party conservatives had finally had enough of the “moderate’ leadership.
Good morning Miss Onyx:) you would never know how much I love Newt! I was elated when he defended Akin and blasted Rove. This morning I heard him blasting Obama and Libya. He has guts!
Read an article about Newt, DeMint and Akin all ruffling the feathers of the gop e:) ahhhhh that makes me smile.
Speaking of Reid..you remember when Rove would not back Angle against Reid in the Nevada senate race.
((((elephant)))) we have the good guys on our side.
Here’s my dream interview.
Matt Lauer: Aren’t you embarrassed to be supporting someone who has such a backwards view of rape and pregnancy - here in 2012? How bad does this hurt the GOP as a party?
Newt Gingrich: Well he’s admitted he was wrong. And listen, some of us have personal beliefs that don’t really jive sometimes with the American public, that are outside the mainstream of society.
Lauer: (interrupt)... But don’t you think..
Gingrich: Now hold on for a second, Matt. We have a president of the United States of America who voted three times, three times, to allow for the death of a baby who had survived an abortion. A baby outside of the mother’s womb who had survived. Think about that. He voted three times in the Illinois State Senate to allow those babies to rot, to die all alone in a dark room with no doctor assistance. That is sick. That is not an American value. So why don’t you ask every Democrat candidate and elected official if they believe in the values of President Obama. You guys are so dishonest and corrupt.
..the tide is turning and I am VERY glad I was wrong about Akin pulling out...
Let’s make Mitch McConnell’s life truly miserable. Let’s make him yearn for the days of his buddy Harry Reid’s majority. Let’s send him Todd Akin, Deb Fischer, Ted Cruz, Richard Mourdock, Rick Berg, Charlie Summers, Denny Rehberg, Pete Hoekstra, Connie Mack, Jeff Flake, Curt Bills, and Tom Smith (I may have left out a few).
I am glad to see this. Conservatives have to band together against the Rockefeller and Tokyo Rove types. I believe Aiken is a good man, and what he said was true, even though he put it crudely.
Good for Santorum.
Has DeMint’s SCF now made the decision to financially support Akin or is that still in the air?
You could have passed for Newt:) dream interview indeed.
She's of the mind that Akin will cost regaining the Senate.
I'm always happy to see the feathers of neocons and white shoe elitists of the GOP ruffled when they are so wrong about so many things.
Heard Newt on Gretta last night slamming the Kenyan and belittling him, calling him a “part-time” president, that could care less about the American people, whose only in love with himself. If Romney would turn into Newt during these so-called debates and call out the worthless POS for exactly what he is, he would win the election in a landslide. Ask him why he hates Israel and sucks up to the Arabs, and ask him why he hates Christians........and remind him that his actions in office prove it. Romney has got to take the skin off this SOB or he’s going to lose the race.
Think about what’s happened in the past couple of weeks: Obama wants us all to bend over backwards and throw away our First Amendment rights in order to respect the religious beliefs of militant Islamists who threaten to murder us if we challenge their faith... and yet Todd Akin is supposed to feel guilty and ashamed because he supports the sanctity of life due to his religious faith? That’s absolutely absurd.
Stop feeling ashamed- start fighting back. Go Akin.
