| No Comments

Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina plans to resign from the Senate in January to work for the Heritage Foundation as its president, the Washington Post reported.

The Washington Post says that the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, needs newer, stronger leadership.

The New York Times reported that this opportunity provides DeMint a platform to push the Republican Party even farther to the political right.

"I'm leaving the Senate now, but I'm not leaving the fight, " DeMint said, according to the New York Times.
