S.E. Cupp and the Blaze panel sat down with Senator Jim DeMint during Thursday’s “Real News From The Blaze” to discuss the 2012 election, particularly Romney’s success with Tea Partiers in the Florida Primary.  Of Romney, DeMint said, “he showed that he could stand tough” in Florida and “that’s what made the difference in my mind.”

“I’m glad we dispelled this myth that Tea Partiers won’t support Romney.”

When asked if he thinks the Tea Party’s credibility will be tested this election, DeMint suggested that there is no one candidate that fits the Tea Party because the Tea Party comprises so many different small groups around the country — from Libertarians to disaffected Democrats to conservatives and Independents.
