Todd Akin Withdrawing From Missouri Senate Race? | Main | Obama's Stupid Surprise Press Conference
August 20, 2012

Akin: No, I'm Not Getting Out
Update: Audio of Hannity Interview/Harrangue Added

On Hannity.

So, assessing the damage: Likely McCaskill will win a seat we were counting on as a pick-up.

Further, No Exceptions Even For Rape now becomes a serious electoral issue in all other contests.

Further, it becomes especially important in Missouri. A state Romney/Ryan need to win.

Horrific.

It is what it is. As everyone will, I'm sure, I'll do what I can to ignore this, and argue about "distractions" and such.

And we'll see if that gets us anywhere.

Audio: The Hannity interview -- which I haven't heard, but which is teased as "brutal" -- is here.

Apparently Akin makes the slightest nod to "listening what the party is saying" at the end of the interview.

Coulter: For the good of the country, step aside.

Dated? Via Instapundit and @rdbrewer4, this report about Akin's advisers readying for a withdrawal. But this may be dated by now -- he insisted on Hannity he was staying in, no matter what the consequences.

Prayer Vigil?

@davidharsanyi: MI GOP insider tells me that Akin is meeting w/staff & having a prayer vigil tonight. Looking for way out "gracefully"

Gallup: 20% of the public agrees with the no-exceptions position.
