Sen. Jim DeMint’s strategy for 2012: Wait and see

But ask the senator what his playbook will be for getting conservative Republicans elected, and his answer is: “I think it’s going to take some time to see which candidate is really willing to do the things necessary to stop us from running off a fiscal cliff, like demanding passage of a balanced budget amendment,” DeMint told The Daily Caller.
