Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., withdrew from consideration Wednesday to prevent a conflict of interest with his position as vice chairman of the Ethics Committee, an aide told The Hill.

Isakson helped lead the inquiry into Ensign's affair with a former aide who was married to one of his top staffers.

"Senator DeMint is very interested in serving on the Finance Committee and has requested it every time since he was elected," DeMint's spokesman Wesley Denton said.

"This is where the big policy battles are taking place that will determine the future of our country.” Denton added.
