Video: Cornyn, Vitter and Coburn on Akin and the GOP
This afternoon I asked three U.S. senators — including John Cornyn, R-Texas — to comment on the damage done to the GOP by U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., who refuses to quit his U.S. Senate race.
This afternoon, at an event co-produced by the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, I asked U.S. Sens. John Cornyn, R-Texas; David Vitter, R-La.; and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., to assess the fallout from the refusal of U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., to quit his U.S. Senate race.
