Heavyweight Republican Sen. Jim DeMint, who has remained neutral in the presidential race, says a brokered convention is unlikely. But if an outsider were to emerge as a replacement for the four current candidates, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels would be the one, the South Carolina conservative says.

The most likely cause of a brokered convention would be an 11th-hour scandal involving the front-runner before the August convention in Tampa, Fla., DeMint said at a meeting of the Aiken, S.C., Republican Club on Tuesday, The Augusta Chronicle reports. But another candidate could rise up at the convention.

Asked what he thinks of Daniels as a candidate, DeMint said, “He’s the only one who could make it happen. But I don’t think his wife will let it happen.”

The most important factor for Republicans to succeed in November’s elections is party unity, DeMint said. “We as Republicans have got to pull the package together in a way that works,” he said. “This election is where we really need to step up.”

Returning to conservative values is the way to do that, DeMint said. “We can never make this world perfect, but we can make it better by making our own decisions instead of letting Washington elite decide for us.”
