Elected as South Carolina’s 55th senator in 2004, Sen. Jim DeMint quickly established himself as one of the most effective conservative leaders in Washington, seeking to enact innovative solutions to improve America for future generations. He has been a tireless advocate for smaller government, individual liberty, a strong national defense and traditional values, and his work to end earmarks, he is often referred to as a “taxpayer’s greatest ally”. In early 2007, DeMint also fought for immigration reform, based on common sense solutions like securing the border, enforcing the laws already passed, and streamlining the legal system. In 2006, he was elected Chairman of the Senate Steering Committee, which works to advance conservative legislation. Recently, DeMint was ranked as the No. 1 senator voting for responsible tax and spending policies by the National Taxpayer’s Union. DeMint understands the greatness of a country found in the people and values, not in government.
