Akin tops $1 million in online donations

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Republican Todd Akin says he's topped $1 million in online donations for his campaign against Democratic U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill.

Akin mounted an aggressive online fundraising drive in August following his remarks about women's bodies having ways to avoid pregnancy in what he described as "legitimate rape."

Akin has repeatedly apologized since then.
