West Palm Beach, FL- At the Forum Club in the Palm Beach Senator Marco Rubio addressed the ongoing controversy surrounding Representative Todd Akin and the remarks he made that have generated a significant backlash and calls for him to abandon his campaign for the U.S. Senate.
Asked about the controversy and whether Akin should remain in the race, Rubio stated that Akin’s remarks were “distastetful and unfortunate.”
Rubio joins Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sarah Palin in calling for Akin to drop out of his senate race against incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill.
Obviously, I don’t agree with his comments. His comments were distasteful and unfortunate, and I think the decision he has made probably endangers the ability to Republicans to take that seat, and Republicans to take the majority in the Senate.
I would join other voices out there from Sarah Palin to Mitch McConnell, who have advised him to put his country before his candidacy. -U.S. Senator Marco Rubio
