Akin Making First Mo. Appearance Since Rape Remark

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 05:15 PM CDT
(AP) -- Embattled Missouri Congressman Todd Akin is reaffirming plans to stay in Missouri's U.S. Senate race despite a political uproar over remarks he made about rape and pregnancy.

Akin held his first press conference in Missouri on Friday since top GOP leaders called on him to get out of the race because of his remarks that aired on a St. Louis TV station five days ago.

He told reporters he's in the race against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill through the November election and he's in it to win. He says he'll soon resume regular campaign events.

Akin has been apologizing and seeking online donations since remarking last Sunday that women's bodies have ways of avoiding pregnancy in cases of what he called "legitimate rape."

He didn't directly address those remarks Friday.Akin Making First Mo. Appearance Since Rape Remark
