From Vicky Hartzler’s campaign:
Harrisonville – Vicky Hartzler stated today, “Like many Missourians, I found Congressman Akin’s comments baffling, disturbing and misinformed. Over the last few days I have attempted to communicate with him personally; however, my repeated attempts have been unsuccessful. Due to the serious nature of this issue, I hope and pray he will make the right decision for himself, his family and our country and follow the advice of Senators Blunt, Bond, Ashcroft, Talent and Danforth.”

Well, something changed – from three days ago:

….Through spokesman Steve Walsh, Hartzler declined to comment on Akin’s statement. “Congressman Akin made a comment, and he has said he misspoke,” Walsh said. “There is no reason for Congresswoman Hartzler to weigh in.”
