Todd Akin - Not Gonna Do It

The media was abuzz with excitement that Todd Akin might be ready to announce his exit from the Missouri senate race when he called a Friday afternoon press conference.

Apparenlty, there's some people who are having trouble understanding our message...

Akin held a brief, tightly controlled news conference in the St. Louis suburb of Chesterfield after returning from Florida where he had been meeting with leading conservatives as he seeks to revive his campaign against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. His staff limited reporters to five questions and, as he has done repeatedly in recent days, Akin again rejected calls from top Republicans to drop out of the race.
