Not so fast?

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has opened the door to helping Rep. Todd Akin in his bid against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.). But NRSC Chairman John Cornyn (R-Texas) doesn't sound too enthusiastic. From Kentucky's Courier-Journal

“We have no plans to do so,” Cornyn told The Courier-Journal in an interview just a short time ago.

“I just think that this is not a winnable race,” he said. “We have to make tough calculations based on limited resources and where to allocate it, where it will have the best likelihood of electing a Republican senator.”

The Fix wrote Friday morning that Akin's "devastatingly bad" campaign could cost Republicans the Senate.
