Tea partiers kicked of off budget committee by GOP.

I imagine he is tired of fighting both democrats & spendy republicans.

He'll still have a platform to espouse his views. And will be associating with like minded people.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), a leading Senate conservative and founding member of the Senate Tea Party Caucus, will resign from office in January to become president of The Heritage Foundation.

DeMint, who frequently clashed with the Senate Republican leadership during his career over taxes, spending and political tactics, said he will continue to push his conservative vision from outside Congress.

DeMint's decision to leave the Senate after only eight years shocked Washington.
