South Carolina's Jim DeMint: Romney's Silent Surrogate

(Chet Susslin)

January 12, 2012

South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint swears neutrality in the Republican presidential primary, but anyone attempting to connect the DeMint dots this week would be excused for thinking he's effectively a silent surrogate for Mitt Romney.

That DeMint sounds like a Romney supporter isn't surprising: The conservative kingmaker and tea party icon endorsed Romney's maiden White House bid in 2008, and has consistently spoken positively about the former Massachusetts governor despite declining to endorse him again.

But a series of comments made by DeMint this week -- and actions taken by some of his closest confidants -- suggests he's unofficially advocating for Romney, if not outright supporting him.
