Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) is among the senators participating in today's "vote-a-rama" in the Senate, though he has a bit of a stake in today's votes.

DeMint invited his Twitter followers to "stay tuned" today, as he offers amendments on a number of issues, ranging from the budget to bailouts.

DeMint tweeted:
