Todd Akin’s campaign is about to get a big boost from a campaign that at one time backed Sarah Steelman.

The Now or Never Political Action Committee (PAC) announced it is pouring 800-thousand dollars into buying television ads attacking Senator Claire McCaskill.

The PAC says it’s dedicated to helping the Republican Party recapture the majority in the U.S. Senate. The PAC supported Akin opponent Sarah Steelman in the primary campaign.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced it was buying 515-thousand dollars in television ad time for McCaskill for the final push to election day Tuesday.
