Meanwhile, Now or Never PAC -- originally formed to support Akin's primary opponent Sarah Steelman -- announced they would spend $800,000 on helping Akin in the final days of the campaign. "Todd Akin may have not been our first choice for Republican nominee in the race to replace Claire McCaskill," said PAC spokesperson Tyler Harber in a statement. "But, Congressman Akin plays an important role in securing the Senate chamber." The ad essentially asks voters to hold their noses and choose Akin. The narrator says that Mitt Romney will need a GOP Senate, "And that's where Todd Akin comes in. You don't have to agree with everything he says, but in the Senate, you can be sure Akin will vote for Romney's policies."
