Despite Akin's controversial and offensive comments about reproductive rights, he is still neck-and-neck with Claire in the polls. This is anybody's race.

That's why we need your help to expose Missourians to Akin's long history of outside-the-mainstream statements and beliefs.

Thanks for your continued support of Claire,
