The Sec of State for the state of Missouri is a DEMOCRAT. She/he controls everything. Look for this office to obstruct any and every attempt the Republicans make to replace Akins.

"Steelman" isn't a difficult name to remember for a write in candidate.

Except it is about you, Rep. Akin. Akin told NBC this morning that Paul Ryan called him yesterday and urged him to drop out of the Missouri Senate race. Akin is continuing his argument that his decision to stay in the race (the deadline to drop out was yesterday at 5 pm cst) that this isn't about him but about standing on principle. The problem is, the focus isn't on principle, it's on Akin's refusal to drop out like nearly the entire conservative movement and Republicans have asked.
