Springfield News-Leader: McCaskill's an easy choice

Not surprisingly, the Springfield News-Leader Editorial Board did not take long to make its decision on which U. S. Senate candidate to support. The newspaper endorsed the re-election of Claire McCaskill today:

While McCaskill has been a role model and advocate for women’s rights, Congressman Akin would be a throwback to attitudes that prevailed decades ago. And it’s not just for his ignorant remarks on women being able to avoid pregnancy in cases of “legitimate rape.” The Republican candidate’s views on a host of other issues — Social Security, student loans, school lunches and even the Federal Reserve — put him well outside the mainstream.
For the good of Missouri, the choice is clear: Re-elect Claire McCaskill to the U.S. Senate.
