U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham honored his South Carolina colleague Sen. Jim DeMint, on the announcement of his retirement from Congress. DeMint will become the president of the Heritage Foundation. Graham, the state’s senior Senator, thanked DeMint for his sincerity in doing what he thinks best for South Carolina and the nation.
“At the end of the day, that’s as good as it gets,” said Graham. “Because if you are doing what you really believe in and you are not worried about being the most popular or people getting mad at you, then you can do a good job in Washington.”
