McCaskill on Akin: The voters have spoken

At a campaign stop in St. Louis, McCaskill fielded question after question about calls for Akin to step aside. And each time she gave the same answer, McCaskill said the voters of Missouri have spoken.

"I'm going to run against Todd Akin," McCaskill said. "We're going to run the contrasts that are necessary so that voters know that he's outside the mainstream, he's very extreme, and that I'm the senator that will be on their side."

She said most Missourians already know that there's a stark contrast between her position on abortion and Akin's stance. 

Standing in front of her campaign bus with a big picture of Missouri on the side, McCaskill said she will travel the state making the case that she's a good old fashioned Missouri-moderate.
