DeMint is not a supporter of Liberty. In the last couple of years, he's followed that philosophy of Liberty in regards to economics. But that's where his support stopped usually. He was a big candidate for the Tea Party, and he actually one of the more fiscal conservatives among the GOP.
However, he's still no Liberty supporter, and Liberty lover should remember him as one. Although his economics for the most part can be applauded.
I do not want Tom Davis appointed to his seat. And he won't anyways. Gov. Nikki Haley will most likely appoint a moderate because her GOP masters tell her to. Her approval rating here in SC is tanking right now. If she knew what was best for her, she'd appoint Davis to try to get backing of the Liberty Movement, but she won't because she's a neocon. Anybody getting there hopes up here thinking she'll appoint Davis is mistaken.
Tom Davis going against Graham is better anyways. Haley will most likely appoint a typical Republican candidate. Lindsey Graham and John McCain should be the Liberty movement's two biggest goals to oust in the Senate. Both of them have atrocious approval ratings in their states. But we need to throw our best stuff, because it's still the establishment we're going against. An appointed Senator is easier to defeat anyways.
