“If Republicans are to win back the Senate and stop President Obama’s liberal agenda, we must defeat Senator Claire McCaskill in Missouri.  Her support of President Obama’s job-killing, big-spending policies are sending our country into an economic abyss.  And her passionate support of ObamaCare is ensuring healthcare costs go up while quality of care goes down.  Simply put, we cannot afford six more years of Senator McCaskill.

“Todd Akin is a principled conservative who is committed to winning and fighting for freedom in the U.S. Senate. Todd will work to stop reckless spending, stop the out of control debt, repeal the government takeover of healthcare, support our military and defend life at every stage.

“We support Todd Akin and hope freedom-loving Americans in Missouri and around the country will join us so we can save our country from fiscal collapse,” concluded Santorum and DeMint.

    Glad they did it even though their endorsements are quite late – not coming before Akin’s deadline to drop out of the race. That said I think that it is doubtful that the endorsements will have any affect on the race because those who follow Santorum and DeMint were already going to vote for Akin. Senator Blunt has also endorsed Akin. Guess it would be good for Akin to get en endorsements from Missourians like John Ashcroft, Kit Bond, John Danforth and Jim Talent. Hard to say. I do hope that he wins.

      I don’t always agree with you on every point of every issue, but I think you have made a good analysis here Kansas Bob. I am glad that Santorum and DeMint made a joint endorsement of Todd Akin, but agree that at least most of those who support Santorum and DeMint were already Akin supporters. Now that Senator Blunt of Missouri is on board might help a little bit.

        The big GOP dogs in MIssouri are John Ashcroft, Kit Bond, John Danforth and Jim Talent. Would be good for a few of them to reverse their previous condemnation of Akin calling for his withdrawal from the race. Of course if Talent ran this time around Akin would not have won the primary.
