Cornyn Releases Statement Suggesting Akin Should Drop Out

by Katrina Trinko

NRSC chairman and Texas senator John Cornyn issued this statement about Todd Akin this afternoon:

 

Congressman Akin’s statements were wrong, offensive, and indefensible.  I recognize that this is a difficult time for him, but over the next twenty-four hours, Congressman Akin should carefully consider what is best for him, his family, the Republican Party, and the values that he cares about and has fought for throughout his career in public service.
