Columbia, S.C. – This morning, South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Chad Connelly released the following statement on the news that U.S. Senator Jim DeMint plans to leave the Senate in January to become the President of the Heritage Foundation.
“Jim DeMint is a small businessman who ran for Congress to change the way Washington works. Without question, he succeeded. Senator DeMint is a conservative rock star. At the Heritage Foundation, he will be in an even greater position to spark revolutionary change. I commend his principled leadership and service to our state. Thank you, Senator.”
