Scott Brown Calls On Akin To Resign Senate Nomination

Brown's lead consultant, Eric Fehrnstrom, also is one of Mitt Romney's top presidential campaign advisers. Romney is expected to be asked about the controversy at his campaign stop in New Hampshire today. (Romney told National Review today: "Congressman Akin's comments on rape are insulting, inexcusable, and, frankly, wrong. Like millions of other Americans, we found them to be offensive." Already two GOP Senate candidates -- Montana Rep. Denny Rehberg, former Sen. George Allen and Arizona Rep. Jeff Flake -- have already distanced themselves from Akin's remarks. It will be telling to see which ones merely distance themselves and which ones follow Brown's lead and call on him to step down.
