We'll soon know which Republicans are playing poker with the U.S. Senate race in Missouri.

After U.S. Rep. Todd Akin's controversial comments about rape and pregnancy in August, many party leaders, including presidential candidate Mitt Romney, said the Wildwood GOP candidate should drop out.

He has until Tuesday to leave the race, but Akin has given every indication that he plans to fight on through November, where he would face Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill in the general election.
