Sen. DeMint Says He Really Doesn’t ‘Want Paul To Drop Out’

While he has not explicitly endorsed anyone just yet, South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint does want Ron Paul to hang on so his ideas rub off on the eventual nominee, reports the Daily Caller:

“I really don’t want Ron Paul to drop out until whoever our front-runner is is collecting some of the ideas that he’s talking about,” DeMint, who recently predicted Mitt Romney would win the Jan. 21 South Carolina primary, said when TheDC asked if it was time for other GOP presidential contenders to drop out and support the former Massachusetts governor.
