After endorsing Rand Paul in Kentucky's Republican Senate primary last Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina issued a statement saying, "Senator (Mitch) McConnell and I are on different sides in this race, but I support him as our leader." McConnell, the Senate minority leader, had endorsed Secretary of State Trey Grayson a day earlier.
