Although she's forcefully condemned the controversial remarks made Sunday by Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) doesn't think it would be appropriate for Republicans to find a new candidate.
Appearing on Morning Joe on Monday, McCaskill cautioned Republicans against replacing Akin, who won the party's nomination in a primary earlier this month.
"Todd Akin won by a comfortable margin and was supported by many very strongly," McCaskill said. "I mean, he has some passionate supporters in the Republican Party...So I really think that for the national party to try to come in here and dictate to the Republican primary voters that they're going to invalidate their decision, that would be pretty radical. I think there could be a backlash for the Republicans if they did that."
