What’s going on this morning?
Congratulations to Todd Akin. He won because he overperformed in what were thought to be strongholds for Sarah Steelman (or was it the Morris jinx?). Hopefully he’ll be able to defeat Claire McCaskill in Missouri.
Hopefully this isn’t the end for Sarah Steelman either. She’s been running for office since 2008 and has come up short against tough competition in her last two statewide races. Washington, DC or even Jefferson City could use someone like Steelman in a position of authority.
