Senator Jim DeMint tells The Brody File that the Republican Party doesn’t need people like Charlie Crist who care more about political polls than principles. He compares Crist to Arlen Specter.
Watch his comments below and read a partial transcription.
As you probably know, Crist is considering ditching the GOP down in that Florida senate race since he trails Marco Rubio by a huge margin. He’s seriously considering running as an Independent instead.
DeMint endorsed Rubio way before he made his climb over Crist.
David Brody: "When you heard that news, when that got to you, what were some of your impressions?"
Senator Jim DeMint: "I think we're seeing with Charlie Crist it's not about principle. It's not about the Republican Party. It's about the numbers and if the numbers don't work in the Republican Party he's looking to see if they'll work as an Independent. We don't need to build a Republican Party around people like that."
