DeMint: ‘We See Conservative Principles Working Everywhere’


New Heritage Foundation preident Jim DeMint espoused conservative principles rather than discussing the state of the Republican Party in a CNBC interview Tuesday, saying conservative ideas are working all over the country and national electoral success would follow with a strong grass roots campaign like in 2010.

One example the former South Carolina Senator gave was the passage of right-to-work legislation last month in Michigan.

"What we need to do, and one of the reasons Heritage brought me on, is take this message straight to the American people, showcase successes all over our country," DeMint said. "We see conservative principles working everywhere, and we want to do everything we can to bring that to light, to convince Americans that these ideas are good for them. I think that is the only way we are going to win more national elections is if people see that these ideas are working."
