Scott Brown: Akin Should Quit Race
Scott Brown thinks Todd Akin should end his Senate candidacy, reports the Boston Globe:
“As a husband and father of two young women, I found Todd Akin’s comments about women and rape outrageous, inappropriate and wrong,” Brown, a fellow Republican, said in a statement. “There is no place in our public discourse for this type of offensive thinking. Not only should he apologize, but I believe Rep. Akin’s statement was so far out of bounds that he should resign the nomination for US Senate in Missouri.”
So far, Brown is the only Republican senator or nominee to urge Akin publicly to step down.
