Top House Republican distances GOP from new Akin rape remarks

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the highest ranking woman in the House GOP leadership, said Friday that former Rep. Todd Akin's declaration that he now regrets apologizing for his "legitimate rape" comments during the 2012 campaign do not reflect the views of the Republican Party.

"I would say that Todd Akin's comments were not reflective of the Republican Party and the Republican message," McMorris Rodgers, R-Washington, told CNN. The GOP message "is about a better future for every person in this country no matter who you are, no matter your background, and we are about protecting that opportunity for everyone."

Priebus: Book, Benghazi politics help Clinton make money

(CNN) - Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus argued Sunday that Hillary Clinton's book rollout–including last week's leak of the Benghazi chapter and her anticipated book tour–may not be a buildup to a presidential campaign, but simply a strategic effort to make more money.

The chapter, according to Politico, contained a defense of her response to the attack, as well as criticism of Republicans who Clinton says play politics with the deadly assault that killed four Americans.
