Missouri congressman fights to save Senate bid
ST. LOUIS – Rep. Todd Akin fought to salvage his Senate campaign Monday, even as members of his own party turned against him and a key source of campaign funding was cut off in outrage over the Missouri congressman’s comments that women are able to prevent pregnancies in cases of “legitimate rape.”
Akin made no public appearances but went on former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee’s national radio show to apologize. He vowed to continue his bid for higher office.
“The good people of Missouri nominated me, and I’m not a quitter,” Akin said. “To quote my old friend John Paul Jones, I have not yet begun to fight.”
