Akin Watch: Day 2

  • Cook Political Report moves MO Senate Race from “Tossup” to “Lean Democrat.” Yeesh
  • Sarah Palin (henceforth known as “The Boss” in this  blog) called on MO Republicans to start working on a write-in candidate in order to defeat McCaskill. Akin can still remove himself (through courts) by September 25th, so there’s a chance. MO has a “sore loser” law, meaning defeated candidates cannot run on another party in the General. So Steelman and Brunner cannot be run as write-ins, paving the way for one of the many qualified men and women to take his place. My favorite scenario: bait-and-switch, putting Ann Wagner on the Senate ticket and Akin back on his Congressional ticket. Wagner is an accomplished fundraiser with a sterling resume.
  • Eleven reasons Todd Akin didn’t quit.

Presidential/Electoral College update coming later today! Some changes in the works.
