The mailer goes on to play Akin's comments about Social Security — "I don't like it," he says — and his comments that student loans are like "stage-three cancer."
Though similar groups blanket homes with mailers like this one, few literally talk. American Bridge's effort comes as Akin continues to keep Sen. Claire McCaskill's (D) lead down to single digits, only 6 points in the two most recent polls.
Although his comments substantially hurt his support among the GOP establishment, with the National Republican Senatorial Committee and other outside spending groups to this day following through with their pledges not to spend money on the race, Akin has managed to gain the backing of a number of prominent Republican voices, including Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.
Their support, and the red lean of the state, could help boost Akin's chances in the final weeks of the election.
