ST. PETERS, Mo. -- Missouri U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin believes surging support will pull him through.
The Republican spent his final full day of campaigning on Monday by thanking supporters at several stops in the St. Louis area. In St. Peters, he told a couple of dozen volunteers that he sees what he called a “fire and enthusiasm” for his campaign to unseat Democrat Claire McCaskill.
McCaskill was making several stops around the state on Monday.
The Missouri Senate race is among the most-watched heading into the general election on Tuesday. Republicans had long targeted Missouri in their bid to retake control of the Senate. The race took a turn in September after Akin’s comments about rape caused some in the GOP to urge him to drop his bid.
