    Well, well well. Just like Grampa M. said, this is the candidate McCaskill wanted to run against and they spent the $$$$$$$$$$ to make sure he knocked out the other contenders.

    Democrats spent $1.5 mil to help Akin win GOP primary

    From the article and it's worth the read:

    Here’s how the Democrats did it, running ads in the GOP primary that were intended to boost his appeal among the most conservative primary voters:

    The latest example is a new radio ad paid for by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee that attacks Rep. Todd Akin (R), but does so slyly, in a manner that appears to be designed to endear him to conservative voters.

    “Todd Akin calls himself the true conservative, but is he too conservative?” asks the narrator of the ad, which is approved by McCaskill’s campaign and paid for by the DSCC.

    The narrator goes on to note the negative posture Akin has taken toward President Obama, before concluding, “it’s no surprise Todd has been endorsed by the most conservative leaders in our country – Michele Bachmann and Mike Huckabee.”
