In reply to comment: John Brunner or even Sarah Steelman (see in situ)

Wrong nearly every other statewide GOP candidate lost

Steelman or Brunner would not have been chosen by the Missouri Republican party, it would have been a stooge of their own choosing. btw Akin was very receptive and said lots of positive things about Ron Paul, ending the fed, etc. at the MO GOP convention.

He lost because he got outspent...period. The GOP Senatorial campaign refused to send him money

The tv commercials were 100-1 for McCaskill

PS I was a Brunner backer in the primaries, yes he would have crushed McCaskill

Only 1 Republican won in statewide votes in Missouri other than Romney, so Akin is Hardly alone in his loss.
