Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown says Todd Akin should step aside after his rape comments.
Brown issued a statement Monday morning calling Akin’s comments about women and rape “outrageous , inappropriate and wrong.”
“There is no place in our public discourse for this type of offensive thinking. Not only should he apologize, but I believe Rep. Akin’s statement was so far out of bounds that he should resign the nomination for US Senate in Missouri,” Brown concluded.
But Akin spoke on Mike Huckabee’s radio show and told the former Arkansas governor he has no intention of leaving the race.
