TAMPA, Fla.— Karl Rove on Monday predicted Rep. Todd Akin will lose by the widest margin of any Republican candidate in modern history if he remains in his Missouri Senate race against Sen. Claire McCaskill.

"What he said was indefensible and the way he handled it made it worse," Rove told POLITICO's Mike Allen at the first POLITICO Playbook Breakfast at the Republican National Convention.
