Mo. GOP Arranges Final Ad Push for Akin

Source of $700,000 funding not entirely clear


Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) and the Missouri Republican Party are going up in the last week of the campaign with a nearly $700,000 ad buy but the source of the funds is unclear.

This is the first effort launched jointly by the Missouri GOP and Akin. The state party will fund $386,000 of the buy, and Akin's campaign will fund another $300,000.
