Congratulations to Todd Akin on his win. And thank you, Sarah Steelman, for running an inspiring grassroots campaign. Sarah can take pride in being the underdog and mounting an uphill face; she faced the challenge of Beltway insiders and being outspent and underfunded, but she did not waver and her internal compass always pointed clearly in the direction of Constitutional principles. It's an honor to stand by Sarah and her vision for Missouri and the rest of this exceptional nation. I'll continue to support those with such a compass, regardless of the Beltway political pundits' predictions in any race.
Now, it's time for everyone to come together and focus on electing a new senator from the Show Me State. Winning this Missouri Senate race is a critical step in reclaiming the leadership of the U. S. Senate and giving our next president a wise Congress to work with. Together we can do this. On to November.
