When asked again about candidates like Matt Bevin and Milton Wolf, who identify as part of the Tea Party, aren't gaining ground against incumbents in the Senate, DeMint suggested that the Tea Party isn't as "organized" anymore.

"What's happening around the country now is you can't say one candidate's Tea Party and the other one's not," he said.

"I don’t know if they’re calling themselves Tea Party candidates or not," DeMint added later. "I’m called a senator tea party and I've never been a part of a tea party in my life. I’ve been to a lot of meetings."
