Akin Hits Libertarian in Last Ditch Ads

In a reverse version of Akin's tactic, backers of Democratic Sen. Jon Tester have paid for ads to boost Libertarian Dan Cox in an effort to syphon votes from Republican Rep. Denny Rehberg, in Montana's down-the-wire Senate race. But Akin's staunch social conservatism may make libertarians a tough reach for him. The last public, live-caller poll in Missouri gave McCaskill just a two-point lead over Akin, but Democrats claim confidence she will win with a larger margin.
