Jeb Bush, the initial front runner and the establishment choice for the GOP nomination suspended his campaign after a third devastating loss in South Carolina
Jeb headed into the campaign early last year with a decisive advantage, raising over $140 million dollars in Super PAC funds and consistent polls showing him as the clear favorite for the Republican nomination.
Bush started poorly with a sixth place finish in Iowa, garnering a mere 2.8 percent of the vote. Faring somewhat better in the more friendly territory of New Hampshire, Jeb still only barely registered with a fourth place showing. South Carolina, long considered to be territory where Jeb would show his advantages, proved to be the final nail in the Bush legacy.
