Rep. Todd Akin, make room on your campaign platform â€” the Duggar family is on its way.
Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar â€“ and many of their 19 children â€“ campaigned for Rick Santorum during the Republican presidential primaries and now theyâ€™re heading to Missouri to stump for Mr. Akin, the GOP congressman and home-school hero who is trying to unseat Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.
Possibly the countryâ€™s most famous home-schooling family, the Duggars star on TLCâ€™s â€œ19 Kids and Counting,â€ a television show that follows them in their daily lives in northern Arkansas. The family met Mr. Akin at a Patriot Day rally and â€œreally fell in loveâ€ with him and his wife, Lulli, Mr. Duggar said.
â€œTodd Akin is a true-blood conservative,â€ Mr. Duggar told The Washington Times. â€œHeâ€™s somebody we believe in.â€
Itâ€™s a natural partnership, since the Akins educated their six children at home and home-schoolers are among their most devoted and active supporters.
And Mr. Akin is sure to welcome the Duggarsâ€™ help, as he struggles to make up ground in the race after his claim that women are unlikely to become pregnant due to â€œlegitimateâ€ rape alienated most in his party â€” including the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which refuses to contribute to his race.
Mr. Duggar said thatâ€™s an â€œexcuse,â€ saying that Senate Republicans donâ€™t want to support someone as conservative as Mr. Akin, who is one of the staunchest pro-life, anti-gay marriage advocates in Congress.
