Akin Says Karl Rove and Other GOP Leaders Want More RINO’s in the Senate

Sedalia Democrat: (via JohnCombest)
At a campaign stop in Sedalia ver the weekend, Missouri Republican candidiate Todd took another swipe at the Republican leadership that refuses to back his campaign, according to the Sedalia Democratic.
“ Akin told the Democrat that he believes some Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Texas U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, and political operative Karl Rove are working actively to marginalize conservative candidates and are attempting to fill the Senate with “RINOS,” or Republicans in Name Only.”
“Everybody has political opinions and apparently the leadership in the Senate is more moderate,” Akin said. “They have been dabbling in these primaries. Now in this case they went beyond that. They have been dabbling in the general election. When I sniffed out what they were doing, it helped me stake out my position (to remain in the race) all the more.”
