Mike Huckabee asked Akin to clarify his statement of "legitimate rape" Akin responded "I was talking about forcible rape and it was absolutely the wrong word."
Romney call Akin's comments "inexcusable" and "wrong," but stopped short of calling for his resignation.
Akin has until tomorrow (8/21/21) to step out the race to allow the Republicans to field another candidate.
Thoughts on this? Should Akin resign? Do the Republicans have a responsibly to force him out?
