Exit DeMint

by evanmcmurry

Soon to be ex-Senator Jim DeMint:

“My constituents know that being a Senator was never going to be my career.”

Totes. They might have thought it was going to be for the term for which they elected him, though.

Also, this:

Rep. Tim Scott’s name was immediately circulated in the wake of the news as DeMint’s preferred successor. Scott is a conservative, African-American popular with Tea Party activists.

The whole “learning from the 2012 election” thing is just going swimmingly.
