In the online news world, first is not always right, as we’ve recently seen, but a Tweet from Erick Erickson, Editor-in-chief of and a political correspondent for claims that embattled Missouri Representative and Senate candidate Todd Akin has withdrawn from the race.

The Tweet, sent at 2:31 PM, Eastern time, seems to be the only place, for now, that an Akin withdrawal is mentioned. None of the other news outlets, including CNN and RedState’s website, have corroborated this claim.

Erickson’s Tweet, while retweeted nearly 250 times, has not moved any official word one way or the other just yet.
