Duggar family of '19 Kids and Counting' to campaign for Todd Akin in Missouri

The Duggar Family of "19 Kids and Counting" fame will take a tour across Missouri next week to campaign for Rep. Todd Akin.

According to the campaign, the Duggars will be in the state on Oct. 16 and 17, and will stop in Springfield, Osage Beach, Farmington and Poplar Bluff.

Akin is running for Missouri's Senate seat against incumbent Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill. The GOP candidate has battled public fury and calls to quit the race from his own party because of comments he made about rape and pregnancy. He has since apologized for those remarks.

He was recently endorsed by former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum.
