Conservative Cavalry Rides In For Akin

Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., listens to a reporters question as he campaigns during the Northwest Missouri State Fair in Bethany, Mo., Thursday, Aug. 30, 2012. It was Akin's first public interaction with voters since his Aug. 19 comment in a TV interview that women's bodies have ways of averting pregnancy from what he called "legitimate rape." The comment prompted widespread backlash, with some Republicans urging him to quit the race against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. (AP Photo/Orlin Wagner)(AP Photo/Orlin Wagner)

DeMint and Santorum aren't the only two Republicans to rally around Akin now that the drop-out deadline has passed: The Missouri GOP released a statement of support for the congressman, and Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, who has once called for Akin to drop out, said he would work to help the Senate campaign. And former House Speaker Newt Gingrich campaigned with Akin Monday, predicting that GOP groups would come in and help the candidate post-deadline. "No one should've been fooled by the party's faux outrage and their ensuing change of course because as the Republican establishment is making clear today, the Akin backlash was never about principle, it was purely about politics," said Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesperson Shripal Shah.
