Huckabee Defends Akin, Wants Him to Stay in Race

August 23, 2012
In one fundraising missive, Akin said he has asked God and Missouri voters for forgiveness. "For anyone serving in a position of public trust, those are the only two authorities that should matter - as a Christian, God is the ultimate authority," the congressman wrote in the email to supporters. "As a public servant, voters are who I answer to. Party bosses and the insider establishment have a different view. They think you answer to them, not the other way around." Akin's pitch clearly has succeeded with one supporter. In his email, Huckabee said he considers Akin a friend. The former Arkansas governor ended his email with a call to arms. "Now is the time to focus on electing a conservative Senate Majority," Huckabee wrote. "And if the NRSC and RNC and the money-rich PACs won't help Todd Akin get us to the majority, then we'll do it without them. And his seat will not have been sold to the highest bidder, but obtained by the highest principles."
