“Republicans Spent Big on Akin in Missouri, Only to Lose”

NYT: “To the bitter end, establishment Republicans maintained Representative Todd Akin, the Republican nominee challenging Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri, was dead to them, cut off for his comment that women could not get pregnant in the event of ‘legitimate rape.’ Turns out he was not so dead. Newly released campaign finance documents show the National Republican Senatorial Committee transferred $760,000 to the Missouri State Republican Party in the first days of November as the state party opened an ad blitz to try to close the gap with Ms. McCaskill.”
