COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Republican Rep. Todd Akin says Missouri TV viewers should
expect to see his U.S. Senate ads all the way until Election Day.

One of the biggest questions surrounding Akin’s campaign has been whether he will be
able to raise enough money to spread his message. Some big-dollar donors dropped
their support because of his remarks last month about rape and abortion.

Akin said Friday he plans to have enough money to stay on TV from now
until the November 6th election. His most recent ad buys expired earlier this
week at some stations. But advertising records show Akin’s campaign booked
additional spots Friday on at least one Kansas City TV station.

Akin has raised about $400,000 in a little over two weeks from a small-dollar, online
fundraising drive.
