Senator Jim DeMint told CNN today that he's more than happy with the possibility of Mitt Romney being the GOP nominee:

"I can tell conservatives from my perspective is that, I'm not only comfortable with Romney, I'm excited about the possibility of him possibly being our nominee.... Again, this is not a formal endorsement and I do not intend to do that right now but I just think we just need to look at where we are."

Christian Heinze notes that DeMint, a leading conservative, "endorsed Romney in 2008, but seemed to be gun-shy this time, thanks to renewed furor over RomneyCare."
