Senator Jim Demint (R, South Carolina) leaving Senate for Heritage.

Details over at RedState: I’m with Erick that Heritage is damned lucky to get Sen. Demint.  I’m also with Erick that Tim Scott (R, SC-01) would be a good replacement… although I expect that there’s going to be a very quiet, and very savage, battle behind the scenes to persuade Nikki Haley over who to appoint.  We’ll see.

PS: Lindsey Graham, by the way, is right now breathing a sigh of relief.  The implications of this news seriously cuts into the pool of people who might have been thinking of primarying him.
