Republican Todd Akin is up with two new television ads, as his US Senate race enters its final eight days.
One spot features former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who also campaigned for Akin in the primaries. In that ad, "Strong as Steel," Huckabee calls Akin a good Christian man and a courageous conservative who can’t be bought.
A second ad, called "Jobs and Paychecks" speaks about Todd Akin’s plans to strengthen the family by making sure every family has a chance at a paycheck.
