by Javier ManjarresAs we reported earlier, Senator Rubio was putting together a ‘farewell video’ for outgoing U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, who as Rubio states,” is one of the reasons why” he was in the Senate. Rubio goes on to express his gratitude for DeMint’s support of his fledgling Senate campaign back in 2010.
“Senator DeMint is one of the main reasons why I’m in the U.S. Senate. When I ran for the U.S. Senate two and a half years ago, no one thought I had a chance to win. Jim DeMint was the first person in Washington that believed in me and invested in me, and I’m eternally grateful.
“Of course, we’re going to be sad that he’s not going to be with us here in the Senate every day, but we’re excited for the new opportunity that he has to lead the limited government, free enterprise movement from outside the Capitol at the Heritage Foundation. We’re just excited about that and look forward to working with him in his new capacity.”-Senator Marco Rubio
