Republicans Tell Todd Akin They’re Giving Up On Missouri
Senator John Cornyn, who heads the National Republican Senatorial Committee, says, “We’re done.”
“As far as I’m concerned, that’s up to the people of Missouri,” he added. “I’ve done everything I know how to do.”
As Akin begins to build a campaign operation focused heavily on turning out conservatives, Republicans in Washington are starting to put their cash elsewhere, resigned to the increasing likelihood that they will be stuck with a candidate they fear has no chance against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.).
