F-Bomb Roils Otherwise Sleepy Wash. Senate Race

August 21, 2012
The email comes just a day after Baumgartner discussed his views on abortion with the website in light of controversial comments made by Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., regarding abortion. In the interview, Baumgartner called Akin's comments "idiotic," but he reasserted his view that the practice should be illegal even in the case of rape. Akin remains his party's nominee to face Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., despite widespread calls for him to withdraw from the race. Baumgartner also used the opportunity to call for a "truce" on social issues, trying to steer the conversation back to Afghanistan and the economy. Cantwell seems unlikely to grant that request: She sent out a fundraising email citing his views on the issue and calling him "dangerous," PubliCola reported. Baumgartner was already a longshot candidate in Washington State, and has trailed far behind Cantwell in fundraising: she's raised more than $8 million so far to his nearly $700,000. The email, however personal, seems unlikely to help.
