Early life and education

DeMint was born in Greenville, South Carolina, one of four children. DeMint's parents, Tom Eugene DeMint and the former Betty W. (Rawlings) Batson,[1] divorced when he was five.

U.S. House of Representatives

In 1998, when Fourth District Congressman Bob Inglis decided to keep his promise to serve only three terms and ran against Senator Fritz Hollings, DeMint won the Republican primary for the district, which includes Greenville and Spartanburg. He then won the general election in November. The district is considered the most Republican in the state, and he did not face a serious or well-funded Democratic opponent in 1998 or in his two re-election campaigns in 2000 and 2002.

U.S. Senate

2004 election

DeMint declared his candidacy for the Senate on December 12, 2002, after Hollings announced that he would retire after the 2004 elections. DeMint was supposedly the White House's preferred candidate in the Republican primary. Some thought DeMint was at a disadvantage since South Carolina had never elected two senators from the same region of the state. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina's other senator, was also from the Upstate (and had represented the neighboring 3rd District from 1995 to 2003). December 12 is the 346th day (347th in leap years) of the year in the Gregorian calendar, with 19 days remaining. ... For album titles with the same name, see 2002 (album). ...

DeMint then faced Democratic state education superintendent Inez Tenenbaum in the November general election. DeMint led Tenenbaum through much of the campaign until DeMint committed a series of gaffes late in the race. In fact, Graham dispatched his Chief of Staff to ensure that DeMint committed no more verbal errors. However, the state's strong support for George W. Bush helped DeMint defeat Tenenbaum by 9.6 percentage points. DeMint's win meant that South Carolina was represented by two Republican Senators for the first time in its history. Inez Tenenbaum (born March 8, 1951) is a U.S. politician from the state of South Carolina. ...

DeMint stirred controversy during debates with Tenenbaum when he stated his belief that openly gay people should not be allowed to teach in public schools. When questioned by reporters, DeMint also stated that single mothers who live with their boyfriends should similarly be excluded from being educators. He later apologized for making the remarks without specifically retracting their substantive claims, saying they were "distracting from the main issues of the debate." He also noted that these were opinions based on his personal values, not issues he would or could deal with as a member of Congress.[2] GAY can mean: Gay, a term referring to homosexual men or women The IATA code for Gaya Airport Category: ...

The DeMint factor - Salon (1294 words)
DeMint quickly paid up after he was embarrassed by the newspaper's revelation, offering an excuse that he hadn't received timely notification of the overdue property taxes.
DeMint's troubles date back to March 1987, when the IRS filed a lien for $1,050 in overdue taxes against James W. DeMint and DeMint Marketing Management Inc. He didn't satisfy the lien until October 1990, more than three years later.
DeMint was elected to the House in 1998 to represent the small-town and rural Piedmont district, traditionally dominated by non-union textile mills but lately the site of foreign manufacturing investment, attracted by relatively cheap labor.
