Todd Akin vs. Claire McCaskill

After winning the Republican primary, Todd Akin was leading the race against incumbent Claire McCaskill (D). Akin careened off course, though, when he commented during an interview that “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down” in mid-August. Immediately, Republican bigwigs called for him to drop out of the race and the national GOP pulled its funding. But Akin is sticking around. Will his comments prove to be his undoing or just a blip on the campaign trail?
