Akin? We'll take him - HuffPost

Elise Foley reports on the Huffington Post:

"Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) won two more socially conservative backers for his senatorial bid on Wednesday when former presidential candidate Rick Santorum and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) announced their endorsements.

"'If Republicans are to win back the Senate and stop President Obama's liberal agenda, we must defeat Senator Claire McCaskill in Missouri,' they wrote in a joint statement, referring to the current Democratic senator.'Her support of President Obama's job-killing, big-spending policies are sending our country into an economic abyss. And her passionate support of ObamaCare is ensuring healthcare costs go up while quality of care goes down. Simply put, we cannot afford six more years of Senator McCaskill.'

"Akin came under fire last month for saying women can shut down their bodies against pregnancy in instances of 'legitimate rape,' leading the Republican National Committee and presidential nominee Mitt Romney to call for him to drop out of the race.

"Lately, though, more conservatives have come out to support Akin. Akin's last day to leave the race was Tuesday, and he didn't -- meaning he is the only real possibility for voters who hope to oust McCaskill.

"Santorum is a vocal opponent of abortion rights and made the issue central to his campaign, while DeMint has attempted to add anti-abortion measures to unrelated bills in the Senate.

"DeMint said last week he was considering throwing support -- and money -- behind Akin.

"Another former presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, is also supporting Akin and campaigned with him Monday.

"Missouri Republicans also are showing their support for Akin this week. Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and state GOP Chairman David Cole said they will back his candidacy."
