Reince Priebus piles on

RNC chairman Reince Priebus is joining the chorus of those calling for Rep. Todd Akin (R) to consider leaving the Missouri Senate race.

"It was a moment of stupidity, that's for sure, " Priebus said in a brief interview in Tampa, where he is preparing for the start of the Republican National Convention. "He's got to get on it. He's got to think about it," Priebus said of withdrawing from the race.
