U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, who touted himself as the most conservative congressman in Missouri, won a hard-fought Republican primary Tuesday for the right to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill in a contest that could be pivotal for party control of the chamber.
...one of his first votes in office was to oppose the No Child Left Behind Act, the federal education law signed by Republican President George W. Bush. Akin has continued to call for the elimination of the federal education department. He also notes that he was firmly against the 2008 bank bailout. And Akin warns that the federal government suffers from "Stage Three cancer of socialism."
