Harry ReidJim DeMint

DeMint congratulates all the Tea Party Republicans who overcame a determined, partisan opposition to win their elections. He advises them to put their boxing gloves on, as the fight begins today. While in Washington, he suggests they remember what the voters back home want: less government and more freedom. DeMint concludes that Tea Party Republicans were elected to go to Washington and save the country–not be co-opted by the club. It’s up to them to stop the spending spree and make sure we have a government that benefits America instead of being a burden to it.

DeMint is a Republican senator from South Carolina.
