Posted on 08/20/2012 11:37:35 AM PDT by SE Mom
An NRSC source just confirmed to me what various outlets have been reporting: if Todd Akin remains the senate candidate, NRSC will invest no financial resources into the Missouri senate race. Previously, NRSC had planned to spend $5 million.
And Crossroads has already taken some TV ads off the air, reports Politico.
If Akin does remain in the race, hes going to be relying, it appears, virtually exclusively on whatever his campaign raises, without any financial help from outside groups.
From what Im hearing Akin will be dropping out of the race
Hard to believe I’m in agreement with the GOP..but it’s sure to be a once in a blue moon kind of thing!
This one should have been a slam dunk! What a mess indeed.
Yeah, but would we know the difference. The NRSC does all it can to prevent conservatives from getting into the senate.
Did Akin really say this?
Aikin gone in 24 hrs or less..
In another thread, Erick Ericson is reporting that Akin will drop out.
Where did you hear this? Akin just appeared on Huckabee and defiantly vowed to remain in til the bitter end.
The libs are probably livid for allowing this to get out so soon. They should have held it, when there was no chance for an escape route.
"Conservatives" is one thing. "Idiots determined to shoot themselves in the foot" is something else.
Paging Mrs. Palin... please have Ms Steelman pickup the red courtesy phone!
I hope so...we don’t need this kind of distraction.
Lol know what you mean but this is no brainer. The dude sounds like a moron if he thinks a woman’s body can prevent pregnancy during a rape. The dems are loving this and they also look ridiculous trying to tie the comments to all republicans and Ryan. Best to cut this guy out of the race and move on.
What a mess indeed.
What an idiot. Please let him drop out so someone else can step in and beat McCaskill. This seat is a no-brainer alongwith Nebraska.
Someone just made Akin an offer he couldn’t refuse.
If this were in some hopelessly blue state, it wouldn’t really be a big deal, but this is the race that likely keeps the Senate in Harry Reid’s hands.
Say hello to permanent Obamacare.
Video has gone viral. 300,000 or so views. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdisTOKom5I
Collosal jewel of stupidity. Akin needs to go. How stupid can he be? This will be such a distraction and heck, the other 2 runners up are also conservative and will have a better chance.
