Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) endorsed California US Senate candidate Chuck DeVore Tuesday, one day before former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina formally announced her campaign at a “green detergents” plant. Fiorina is likely to have the support of mainstream Republicans, and her personal wealth indicates that DeVore has a huge uphill climb in terms of fundraising. DeMint’s PAC, the Senate Conservatives Fund, has already poured thousands into the Marco Rubio senate campaign in Florida, where the conservative Rubio is running against the more moderate Governor Charlie Crist. If national conservative leaders begin to support DeVore, it could make for an interesting competition.
