Women's issues have been a frequent focus in the race. Brown was the first to call on Missouri GOP Rep. Todd Akin to resign from the Senate race after his comments on "legitimate rape." In the aftermath of Akin's remarks, Warren sought to tie them to Brown and to the national GOP agenda. In September, Brown released an advertisement touting his record on women's issues and his support from women. Warren brought up Brown's record on women's issues and vote against Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan during their first debate, leading him to admonish her to "stop scaring women, professor." A recent Boston Globe poll that had the Democratic candidate edging the senator by a few points poll showed Warren leading Brown by 12 points among women voters. Meanwhile, Murray was also asked on the call about the Maine Senate race, where the DSCC has made an ad buy but hasn't endorsed Democratic nominee Cynthia Dill and is assumed to favor Independent former Gov. Angus King, who leads in polls. "We've been very clear in the Maine race," said Murray in response to the question. "We have not endorsed in that race."
