Two weeks ago, Missouri U.S. Senate hopeful Sarah Steelman made her claim as the the choice for conservatives in the GOP primary.

Today, Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) tells WND he’s not only the best choice for conservatives but has the record to prove it. Akin lists a number of initiatives like No Child Left Behind and entitlement expansion that he opposed in the Bush administration and bucking John Boehner during the debt-ceiling negotiations.

“While promises and talk are cheap … my record shows me as the most conservative congressman in Missouri,” said Akin.

Akin also tells us why current economic numbers, energy prices and the new estimated costs for Obamacare are all reasons to defeat Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill in November. Akin also says he doesn’t think some recent moderate votes by McCaskill will be able to distract voters from her record over the past six years.
