Republican Rep. Todd Akin and Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill shake hands after the conclusion of the second debate in the Missouri Senate race Oct. 18 in Clayton.
With a little less than a week remaining before Tuesday's general election, some voters might remain undecided in the three-way race for Missouri's U.S. Senate seat. With that in mind, the Missourian has boiled down and outlined the stances of incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill, Republican challenger and U.S. Rep. Todd Akin and Libertarian challenger Jonathan Dine on some of the major issues in the campaign. It also sought independent, local experts to analyze those stances.
