Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) gets very serious on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
She wouldn't call for Rep. Todd Akin (R) to drop out of the race, but some Republicans might wish he would. Via Morning Fix:
“Don’t expect Missouri Republicans to defend Akin,” said one Missouri GOP strategist granted anonymity to speak candidly about the situation. “Akin has never helped fellow Republicans so no one has any loyalty to him. The strategist added: “The real problem is that Akin will continue to make these off-the-wall stupid comments.”
