Akin Acting Like He's Not Leaving Senate Race

CORRECTION: The new ad buy is for the apology ad. An earlier version of the story reported that it was for a new, different ad.

Embattled GOP Missouri Senate nominee Todd Akin has placed a media buy running from August 22 to August 27, according to two sources familiar with the buy, diminishing Republican hopes that he will get out of the race by today's 5:00 p.m. deadline.

Akin released an apology ad today to deal with the growing GOP firestorm over his comments.

Akin could still drop out up to September 25 with a court order.
