Conservative political groups are in town to help craft the Republican Party platform. At least one is standing by its support of a controversial candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri. This week Representative Todd Akin apologized for suggesting women who are victims of legitimate rape might not get pregnant because their bodies can shut down a pregnancy. Connie Mackey, president of the Family Research Council Action PAC, confirmed that Akin was in Tampa yesterday to help consult on the GOP platform.
