The Republican nominee for Senate in Montana, Rep. Dennis Rehberg, blasted his colleague and fellow Senate nominee Rep. Todd Akin for his remarks Sunday that victims of "legitimate rape" have biological defenses which prevent them from becoming pregnant, calling the remarks "offensive and reprehensible," according to The Hill.
"As a pro-life conservative, a husband, and a father of two young women, I find Representative Akin's remarks to be offensive and reprehensible," said Rehberg in a statement Sunday night. "There is no such thing as a 'legitimate rape.' I condemn Representative Akin's statements in the strongest possible terms."
Rehberg is in a tight race against incumbent Democratic Sen. Jon Tester.
