Congressman Todd Akin, 2nd District Missouri, is currently considering taking on Senator Clair McCaskill in the 2012 election.
I don't know much about Congressman Akin, so I'm not ready to give him glowing praise just yet, but he is a co-sponsor of Senate Bill S13, the FairTax Bill. I am looking forward to hearing him speak.
With all the hype surrounding the GOP's field (or lack thereof) for the White House run, those considering down ballot elections are wise to get an early start. Claire is a darling of the Democrat Party and Congressman Akin will have his work cut out for him should he choose to run, but as long as Claire continues to open her mouth on the public airwaves his job should get a lot easier. The National Republican Senatorial Committee has released a scathing video related to the Senator's air transportation fiasco.
You can check out Congressman Akin's voting record here and Senator McCaskill's is here.
This Thursday evening, Congressman Akin will be the featured speaker at the monthly FairTax meeting held in Kansas City. The meeting is open to the public and a light dinner will be served.
