A Greene County Republican official is defending congressman Todd Akin as he battles to keep his name on the ticket in the race for U.S.Senate.
Circuit court clerk Steve Helms says Akin misspoke when talking about abortion and rape, but he has admitted his mistake, apologized and asked for forgiveness..
Helms says there isn't anybody in public life who hasn't misspoke and made mistakes when speaking.
Helms says many Republicans have joined the chorus on the left. The issue has become greater than it should have been.
Helms says the real issues in the campaign should be defeating Claire McCaskill and Barack Obama.
