DeMint’s Last Stand: Conservative Lawmakers Rally Behind The Heritage Foundation President

Former Sen. Jim DeMint is hanging by a thread at the Heritage Foundation right now. It has been reported that he is likely to be ousted as President of the conservative think-tank in the days to come, but not if the most conservative legislators in Washington D.C. have anything to say about it!
