18. I think its pretty simple

If the repubs had captured the Senate, I have no doubt DeMint would have stayed in office. Among other things, hw was in line to become the chairman of the powerful Senate Commerce Committee. Now he faces at least two and probably four more years as "ranking" member of the minority. Having dealt with him and his staff, its clear to me that its mostly a power (and to a certain extent) money thing. He's not a lifelong politician and without the perks of being in the majority, I don't think the job holds that much interest
