This is a difficult election year for Republicans in Missouri. Their candidate for the U.S. Senate, Todd Akin, dug a deep hole for himself when he made insensitive remarks about rape, pregnancy and abortion. He apologized. Top GOP leaders asked him to drop out of the race against incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill. He refused.

After he stubbornly refused to quit the race, gradually many Republicans, because of party loyalty, returned to the fold, that is, they said they would support him. They all are not happy with him, which can be the case in many major races. Party members often aren’t thrilled with their party’s candidates.
