I've been saying all along that this BIG BACKER of Mitt Romney in 2008, will endorse Romney when the time is right.
Here's what Jim said on the Mark Levin show:
“I was just sitting here listening to the Romney acceptance speech, and he’s hitting a lot of the hot buttons for me about balancing the budget, and frankly I’m a little concerned about the few Republicans who have criticized some of what I consider free market principles here,” DeMint said.The full story is HERE.
“I’m still not going to endorse, Mark, because Republicans are yet united and I want to focus on the Senate,” he said. “I think whoever gets elected as a Republican, I want to help deliver a conservative Senate, otherwise it doesn’t matter who is in the White House.”
Later in the program, DeMint predicted a Romney win in his state.
“Some of the others who might have had an advantage here have really crossed paths, crossed ways with some Republicans as they have criticized free enterprise concepts,” DeMint said, clearly referencing former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Here is the interview:
And who can forget these words from Jim DeMint back in 2008?
""I haven't seen anyone (Romney) light up a room like that since Reagan"~Jim DeMint
I have to agree with Jim on that.
