Wyclef Jean hit an early roadblock in his campaign for president of Haiti: his former bandmate won’t even endorse him.

The New York Daily News reports that Pras, who was in the Fugees with Wyclef, has announced his support of Michel Martell for Haiti’s president. “He is the most competent candidate for the job,” he said in a statement. (See video of Jean announcing his run to TIME.)

This is certainly sour news for Wyclef, but one major factor still remains: the crucial Lauryn Hill swing vote.
