Hartzler says Akin should drop out

Just before 6:00pm Wednesday, Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R) issued this statement via email:

"Like many Missourians, I found Congressman Akin's comments baffling, disturbing and misinformed. Over the last few days I have attempted to communicate with him personally; however, my repeated attempts have been unsuccessful. Due to the serious nature of this issue, I hope and pray he will make the right decision for himself, his family and our country and follow the advice of Senators Blunt, Bond, Ashcroft, Talent and Danforth."
