Jim DeMint of South Carolina predicted that Republican frontrunner Romney would win the state in the upcoming Presidential primary. "I think Romney's going to win here," said DeMint, "I think that some of the other that might have had an advantage here have really crossed ways with some Republicans as they've criticized free enterprise concepts." DeMint said, clearly referencing Jon Huntsman, Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich's recent attacks on Romney's record at Bain capital. Demint added that he liked Romney's acceptance speech tonight, noting that, "Hes hitting a lot of the hot buttons for me about balancing the budget, and frankly Im a little concerned about the few Republicans who have criticized some of what I consider free market principles here, DeMint said. DeMint said he was not going to endorse a candidate yet, because he wanted to focus on the Senate. "I want to help deliver a conservative Senate, otherwise it doesnt matter who is in the White House. he said.
