Todd Akin Will Not Drop Out

Confirmed with Mike Huckabee


Rep. Todd Akin, the embattled Senate candidate who used the phrase "legitimate rape" in talking about abortion and pregnancy, said Tuesday afternoon that he would stick to his decision to remain in the race.

In an interview with Mike Huckabee, who was an early endorser of the Missouri Republican, Akin said that his supporters have asked him to keep campaigning.
