Rep. Mark Sanford, a Republican from South Carolina, says the writing is on the wall for Jeb Bush.

Asked on Wednesday by South Carolina radio host Jay Harper if he was surprised Bush wasn't doing better, Sanford said, "It does, simply because the Bush family in general has a lot of history in this state, it's liked."

"I've not endorsed him," he continued. "I'm spectating in this particular election. It's interesting again, as a political phenomenon, to see somebody with all that money, all that organization, all those things supposedly going for him, he just hasn't broken through. And I don't believe he will. I believe the handwriting's on the wall. If it hadn't happened by now, I can't imagine it happening, but we'll see."
