truggling Republican Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin, under fire for his remarks about "legitimate rape," is beginning to pick up support from his fellow GOPers. He picked up two big endorsements Wednesday from former presidential candidate Rick Santorum and Tea Party star Sen. Jim DeMint. In addition, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which had previously pulled millions of dollars of planned advertising for the candidate, said it hopes Akin beats Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. Tuesday was the last day Akin could be removed from the November ballot.
