Akin To Announce He's Sticking In Missouri Senate Race

August 24, 2012

Embattled Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin is holding a press conference in St. Louis County this afternoon at 5:15 EST to reiterate that he's staying in the race against Democrat Claire McCaskill, according to a source close to the congressman.

"He just wanted to get himself in front of the Missouri press," the source said.

The source said that Akin will be announcing that he's been satisfied with his fundraising efforts since the scandal broke. The source added that the Republican was emboldened to stick in the race after he received a positive reception huddling with conservative activists at a Council for National Policy meeting earlier this week in Tampa.

Akin changed the background of his Facebook page Friday, adding the proclamation: "We Proved The Party Bosses Wrong."
