Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina said yesterday that he thinks Mitt Romney will win the South Carolina primary on January 21.

"I think Romney's going to win here," DeMint said. "It's possible that [Newt] Gingrich or [Rick] Santorum might make another run at it here. [Rick] Perry's spending some time here. But he doesn't seem to be getting any type of traction run of things."

DeMint, a Republican and strong Tea Party supporter, endorsed Romney early in the 2008 presidential cycle but has stayed neutral in this year's GOP primary. It would seem that DeMint's prediction will be the closest he gets to an official endorsement.
