Late Sunday night, in reaction to Akin's remarks, Rehberg called Akin's comments "reprehensible."
"As a pro-life conservative, a husband and a father of two young women, I find Rep. Akin's remarks to be offensive and reprehensible," Rehberg said. "There is no such thing as a 'legitimate rape.' I condemn Rep. Akin's statements in the strongest possible terms."
On Monday, Akin has said he plans to stay in the race.
