U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., will become president of the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank in Washington next year.
DeMint will succeed Edwin Feulner, the man who first envisioned the think tank in 1973 and has led it as president for the past 36 years, Heritage said in a statement.
From today’s press release:
Heritage’s Board of Trustees unanimously chose DeMint as the organization’s next leader, starting April 3. DeMint will resign from the Senate and start as President-elect in early January, so he and Feulner can ensure a smooth transition. After April, Feulner will continue serving as Chancellor of the Foundation and Chairman of our Asian Studies Center.
