I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know and work with Jim DeMint in the US Senate, and I look forward to working with him as the president of the Heritage Foundation. Senator DeMint is a patriot who loves his country and is committed to principled policymaking and intellectual leadership. This is a loss for South Carolina and for the US Senate, but it’s an enormous gain for the Heritage Foundation.
Dr. Ed Feulner’s leadership of the Heritage Foundation has been nothing short of remarkable, and I congratulate him for all he has accomplished. Senator DeMint inherits the mantle of a true Washington icon, and I am sure he will continue the immensely successful path laid out by Dr. Feulner.
