Rand Paul helps Todd Akin in election race

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul is trying to drum up votes, but not for himself.

He's helping Todd Akin, the Republican running for a U.S. Senate seat in Missouri.

Paul's political action committee will begin running an ad tomorrow that criticizes Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill.

It criticizes McCaskill's vote against a Paul amendment that would have blocked foreign aid to Egypt, Libya and Pakistan.

Paul's committee is running similar ads against Democratic senators in several other states.
