Write down the date and time: DeMint praises McConnell

You won’t see this happen too often, so I’d advise you to read this statement from Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C.:

“Senator McConnell’s support for the earmark moratorium demonstrates the kind of bold leadership our party needs,” said Senator DeMint. “His statement today and tomorrow’s vote to enact the moratorium will send a clear signal to voters that Republicans heard the message of the last election. I am proud that House and Senate Republicans have united to end the earmark favor factory…I hope President Obama follows through with his rhetoric and promises to veto any bill with Democrat earmarks.”
