Jim DeMint Echos Conservatives: We Need Some New Republicans! Amen!

Remember after Dede Scozzafava dropped out of New York's 23rd congressional race - after  former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich endorsed the RINO Scozzafava, and raised the ire of conservatives throughout the U.S., and Gingrich famously said something like "from now on the people will do the party picking?" Well, we pickers out here have come close to despairing of ever getting new conservative Republicans in Washington, D.C.  - and especially those focused on the U.S. Constitution. Now sitting Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) says "we need some!" Amen to that. With just a handful of true conservatives (my word...he said 'Republicans) DeMint thinks much can be accomplished in Congress.

Senator Jim DeMint: “I need some new Republicans, people who believe in constitutional government, a balanced budget and liberty and so I’m out across the country recruiting new republicans who I think if they get here will not only challenge the institutions of government but be willing to even challenge the Republican Party and our leadership if they feel like we’re going in the wrong direction. I think just a handful of new Republicans in the senate could help change the direction.”
In the video below, DeMint is talking to David Brody of the Brody File at Christian Broadcasting Network (CNB):
