DeMint US Senator from South Carolina just announced he'd be stepping down from his senatorial duties to go head up the Heritage Foundation. SC Gov. Nikki Haley is responsible for naming a replacement senator.
Do you think someone like Haley has any autonomy in naming a replacement, or would DeMint have demanded to name his own successor before agreeing to give up his senatorial seat?
