During a noticeable lull in visits from the presidentially inspired, Sen. Jim DeMint let it be known today that he wants some me time.

U.S. Senator Jim DeMint will speak to Charleston area residents at a Dutch-treat lunch at Sticky Fingers Restaurant in Mt. Pleasant where he will give a Washington update and take questions from attendees.

“Listening to constituents is very important. Without sufficient feedback, oftentimes elected officials will not govern effectively. I really look forward to it,” said Senator DeMint.

Hopefully this won’t be like his meetings with local airmen in March that was kept from the press at DeMint’s request.
