U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin was at the offices of the Strategy Group for Media near Powell Tuesday afternoon, the same place he crafted his apology about rape comments on Monday.
Akin of Missouri recorded an apology after his comments about "legitimate rape" made national headlines and put him under fire.
"Rape is an evil act, I used the wrong words in the wrong way and for that I apologize," Akin said in his apology statement.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney called on Akin to abandon his Senate bid following the congressman's comments.
"I think he should accept their counsel and exit the Senate race," said Romney.
Akin said Tuesday he is going against leaders of his own party and remaining in the race against incumbent U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill.
CBS News reported that a source close to Akin said he may reconsider.
If he quits the race before 6 p.m. Tuesday, it would be much easier for a new GOP candidate to take his place.
Strategy Group for Media produces ads for dozens of GOP candidates, including Gov. John Kasich.
Akin’s camp said that the central Ohio visit was previously scheduled and was not made in response to the criticism.
