Speaking on Sean Hannity’s radio show earlier today, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) promised that there would be a vote to repeal the health reform law, saying “I can guarantee you it will get a vote in the Senate.”
Although he said he could see “two or three” Senate Democrats as potential votes in favor of repeal, Senator DeMint sounded doubtful that they’d end up actually voting that way.
DeMint said the goal was not to pass a repeal of the health law but instead to make sure that every member was on record for voters to be able to see where they stood on the issue.
He was asked about a possible run for the White House in 2012 and offered these two responses:
- “No, I don’t plan to run.”
- “At this point I have no plans to get in that race.”
What about endorsing a candidate? He told Hannity that he was planning to wait until he sees how the potential candidates respond to what Republicans do in Congress.
