DeMint Refutes Romney Endorsement Rumor
On Monday, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint
(R-SC) refuted rumors that he would likely endorse Mitt Romney for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.
In response to Roll Call's
a spokesman for DeMint stated that:
"That story is a fabrication made up of anonymous sources that obviously have no clue what Senator DeMint is thinking. He has said over and over again that he is not leaning toward any candidate yet and may end up not endorsing in the presidential race."
further notes that "As long as DeMint's endorsement is up for grabs, it gives all the candidates a reason to court his support and speak to his agenda."
