On Tuesday, Missouri’s Republican Senator Roy Blunt released a statement in support of Todd Akin, aka the “legitimate rape” guy, contradicting his stance on Akin last August:
“Congressman Akin and I don’t agree on everything, but he and I agree the Senate majority must change. From Governor Romney to the county courthouse, I’ll be working for the Republican ticket in Missouri, and that includes Todd Akin.”
But, geez, back in August, Sen. Blunt was just so eager to get Akin out of government:
“Todd needs to get out of this race…it’s not helpful.”
Today, it seems, Republicans are more concerned about their determination to win a majority in the Senate. According to Nate Silver, that likelihood is pretty slim.
