Jim DeMint is back in a familiar role - challenging other Republicans to put conservative principles over political costs, and not particularly caring how many friends or allies he offends along the way.
Three years after he helped lead the unsuccessful fight to defeat what he and other foes branded Obamacare, DeMint is returning to the fray.
Joined by Sen. Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican whom DeMint helped get elected by funneling money from his Senate Conservatives Fund, DeMint is on a nationwide "Defund Obamacare Tour" to gin up support for a bid in Congress to withhold funding to implement the landmark health-insurance law. http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/world/56779014-68/demint-obamacare-republican-republicans.html.csp
