JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin is getting some help from a large Arkansas family who has its own TV reality show.

Akin's campaign said the family of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar will be appearing at several of his campaign events this week. The Duggars star on the TLC reality show "19 Kids and Counting," which gets its name from the fact they have 19 children.

Michelle Duggar plans to participate in a women-for-Akin event Tuesday in Springfield. The Duggar family is supposed to attend rallies with Akin later that day in Osage Beach and on Wednesday in Farmington and Poplar Bluff.

Akin, a Republican, is running against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in the Nov. 6 election.
