Today Senator Jim DeMint went after Roll Call for printing a false story that claimed he had plans on endorsing Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination and offered his own presidential poll.
I’m writing to get your opinion on the 2012 Republican primary race for President.
Roll Call, an inside-the-Beltway newspaper, recently fabricated a story suggesting that I was going to endorse Governor Mitt Romney.
The story is completely false. I have no favorite in the presidential race and have no plans to endorse anyone until I find a candidate who earns the trust of grassroots conservatives.
There is no better barometer of the grassroots than the members of the Senate Conservatives Fund. Please take a minute to vote in our online presidential primary poll.
Your opinion matters greatly to me and will have a major impact on any decision I make related to the presidential primary election.
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement. Together, we can defeat President Obama and build a conservative majority in the United States Senate.
United States Senator
Chairman, Senate Conservatives Fund
