Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) will leave the U.S.Senate next year to become president of The Heritage Foundation, succeeding Edwin J. Feulner, the man who first envisioned the think tank in 1973 and has led it as president for the past 36 years. Heritage's Board of Trustees unanimously chose DeMint as the organization's next leader, starting April 3.
