Washington (CNN) - Don't expect Republican Sen. Jim DeMint to petition for the No. 2 spot on the GOP presidential ticket in 2012.
"I have no interest in that," the South Carolina senator told National Review Online. "I would recommend against it. I am more of a change agent than a support actor."
"Somebody would have to be pretty desperate to do that," DeMint added.
The Tea Party favorite has also consistently shot down rumors that he might run for president.
