Well this is a very interesting development. Mary Matalin appeared on ABC’s This Week and said that the Republican party may actually run a write-in candidate against Akin in the Missouri Senate race against Claire McCaskill. Doing so would effectively mean conceding the election to McCaskill, of course, though Matalin appears to be delusional enough to think otherwise.
I can’t imagine she’s right. I predict that the GOP will reverse themselves and support Akin’s candidacy with all the money they initially pledged to do so, unless they become convinced by recent polls that Akin just can’t win, which would lead them to put that money to better use in other races.
