Legislator: Sen. Jim W. DeMint

Jim Geraghty writes on NRO: South Carolina governor Nikki Haley just released the following statement regarding the process of filling the vacancy created by U.S. Senator Jim DeMint's retirement:

"As I continue to consider the impending U.S. Senate vacancy, many have discussed the possibility of a "placeholder" appointee who would pledge to serve for only two years and not seek election to the seat in 2014. While there are some good arguments in favor of that approach, I believe the better case is against it."
