JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill is citing former opponent Todd Akin in a new fundraising plea for a Democratic congressional candidate in South Carolina.

McCaskill sent a fundraising email Tuesday on behalf of Elizabeth Colbert Busch. In her email, McCaskill notes that national Republicans dropped support for then-Congressman Akin last year after he remarked that women’s bodies have ways of avoiding pregnancy from what he called “legitimate rape.”
