A Chuck Schumer Ad. Akin needs to win. (and engage brain before putting tongue in gear)
While his own party has been begging him to get out so they can find someone who will beat my friend Claire McCaskill, Akin has defied them, and his campaign is stronger than ever. He’s already raised hundreds of thousands of dollars off his offensive and medically bogus remarks.
This November, all eyes will be on Missouri to see whether Republicans will pay for their extreme positions on women’s issues and reproductive rights.
I’ve asked supporters to contribute to Claire McCaskill before, but I hope it’s clear now why her race is so urgent.
Republicans haven’t just been begging Akin to get out of the race, they’ve been outright threatening him.
But don’t believe it.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee and Karl Rove’s shady outside spending group have told Akin they won’t support him — but they have NOT cancelled the ad time they’ve reserved on Missouri TV this fall.
That means they’re still keeping an eye on this race. If it stays close, they’ll be right there to help Akin, just like always. That’s because they’ll stop at nothing to take the Senate majority back from Democrats.
We can’t wait to see what they do. We need to support Claire now.
I’ve often said that in intense races in the Senate, the voters get a glimpse of the soul of each person running, who they are, what makes them tick. This is that moment in Missouri, and we need to help Claire win.
Thank you for your support,
