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 RedState.com and a political correspondent for CNN.com claims that embattled Missouri Representative and Senate candidate Todd Akin has withdrawn from the race.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√ā¬†corroborated this claim.

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