Senator Jim DeMint Assumes President Post at Heritage Foundation

Earlier this week at Heritage Foundation’s 40th Annual President’s Club meeting, the organization’s president Ed Feulner passed on the torch to his successor Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC).

DeMint, who was a leading conservative voice in the Senate, officially became president of Heritage Foundation today.

In this morning’s edition of Morning Bell, DeMint spelled out his plan to revolutionize conservative policy making and grassroots.

Our principles will stay the same, but we will constantly need innovative policy ideas to address our nation’s new problems. Heritage’s experts and researchers are busy every day working out solutions to our myriad national challenges. We don’t need new principles. Our values have stood the test of time. It’s important that we draw this distinction between timeless values that have been with us for centuries and new policies that we will need in the 21st Century.

Here is a video outlining DeMint’s vision for the renowned conservative think tank:

DeMint resigned from the U.S. Senate last December to succeed Ed Feulner as president of Heritage Foundation. Feulner is credited for leading the organization to prominence during his 36 year tenure.
