Will Limbaugh apology quell controversy?
WASHINGTON, March 5, 2012 - Rush Limbaugh apologized over the weekend for the language he used to describe a law student who wants insurance coverage for birth control.
But some of his sponsors are dropping his show, and the Republican presidential hopefuls are being drawn into the controversy with Super Tuesday just hours away.
They'd hoped to spend this critical time focused on the issues, such as the economy and energy prices, but instead found themselves faced with questions about Limbaugh.
He's a media powerhouse known for rallying the right, but for some conservatives, his latest comments were too much.
