DeMint: Contested Convention Possible

Via ABC News, Senator Jim DeMint thinks a contested convention is possible:

Sen. Jim DeMint, the South Carolina Republican and Tea Party leader told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl he wouldn’t be surprised to see things go all the way to the convention in August in Tampa, Fla. Karl asked if he thought there was room for another candidate to enter the race at this point.

“I don’t know about another candidate,” Demint said. “But we may go to the convention and decide between these candidates. [Emphasis added] It’d be hard to bring in an un-vetted candidate in the middle of a convention cause we see what this process is doing to our candidates. They’re all getting better. They’re all finding their real, I think value system. And it’s forcing them to be much more tenacious and passionate about what they believe. So anything can happen, I’ve stopped making predictions cause I’ve been wrong every time I’ve made a prediction.”
