DeMint on Crist

Sen. Jim DeMint (R., S.C.) speaks with Fox News:

. . . the people of Florida are onto Charlie Crist. They heard what he said a few weeks ago with Chris Wallace. He said he wasn’t going to run as an independent. Now he’s doing it. He’s flip-flopped so many times that they know they can’t count on him . . . Republicans all across the country are embracing the — the energy, the ideals of this American awakening that’s going on. And Republicans all over the country are having very spirited primaries. And they’re looking for new faces and folks who will come up here and just focus on less spending, less borrowing, less debt and less government takeovers. And if the Republican that’s in office is not doing that, I think you’re going to see some incumbents lose. But, Neil, this is not because the party is moving to the right. This is because the American people are asking us to stand up for basic constitutional limited government principles. That’s what Marco Rubio is going to do.
