DeMint Will Resign to Run Heritage Foundation

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) will resign from the U.S. Senate early next month to take the helm of the Heritage Foundation, the Wall Street Journal reports.

DeMint's departure means that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) will name a successor, who will have to run in a special election in 2014.

David Frum notes DeMint's new job pays $1 million per year. The Washington Post notes he was one of the poorest senators in 2010.
