(From the Todd Akin campaign)
Today the Akin Campaign released the following statement from Todd Akin highlight the 14.3% unemployment among African-Americans.
"The policies of Barack Obama and Claire McCaskill have devastated our economy and have particularly hurt the African-American community," said Todd Akin. "In October unemployment among African-Americans rose from 13.4% to 14.3%. This is wrong and irresponsible. Almost one in six African-Americans is unemployed in our country. If Claire McCaskill and Barack Obama can't get America back to work, then they need to be replaced. It's time for leaders in Washington who will actually get our economy going again and get all of America back to work."
