(BUSINESS INSIDER) Missouri Rep. Todd Akin confirmed that he will stay in the Missouri U.S. Senate race on Mike Huckabee’s radio show this afternoon. 

“We are going to continue with this race for U.S. Senate,” he told Huckabee.

It comes as Republicans had placed increasing pressure on Akin to get out of the Missouri Senate race against Democrat Claire McCaskill after controversial comments suggesting that victims of what he called “legitimate rape” could not get pregnant.
