Sen. Jim DeMint today gave his farewell address to the Senate – but more importantly, he explained his future ambitions as president of the Heritage Foundation.

“My hope is to make conservative ideas so pervasive so persuasive across the country, that politicians of both parties have to embrace those ideas to get elected,” he said.

“I’m not leaving to be an advocate for the Republican party,” DeMint stated, adding that he wanted to promote policy ideas that were “working,” rather than ideas promoted by special interest groups.
