Todd Akin to withdraw from U.S. Senate race tomorrow?

Earlier today in an interview with Mike Huckabee, Akin indicated that he would not be dropping out of the race.

Twitchy will monitor this story as it develops and will update accordingly.



Red State’s Erick Erickson is asserting that Akin will indeed withdraw:

According to Buzzfeed’s Ben Smith, a senior GOP source has revealed that Akin may drop out of the race as early as 5:00 p.m. tomorrow:

Tomorrow afternoon is an important deadline: If he files papers to end his candidacy in Jefferson City tomorrow he can end his candidacy unilaterally; after that, he would have to file an application in court.

We are still awaiting confirmation of Akin’s intent to withdraw.
