DeMint: Republicans Might Not be ready to run Senate
I suspect this is well deployed Fauxtroversy designed to draw national media attention away from their kookier candidates. As the Kook Kingmaker, DeMint certainly would want to do that.
I don’t think they have a chance of winning the Senate anymore.
Then he started speaking about whether Republicans were ready to take back the Senate, he suddenly realized he was in the wrong place and politely exited the room.
Afterward, DeMint elaborated why he believed Republicans in Washington may not be ready to return to power.
“I was just putting out a question because if the idea is we’ve got to field people who don’t agree with us in order to get the majority, that doesn’t make any sense,” DeMint said in an interview. He later said he believed Republicans “might” not be ready to run the Senate.
