I meant to post this earlier but I guess I forgot to.
The winner of the South Carolina Republican Presidential primary by a pretty good margin (and quite surprisingly) is former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Not only did he take first place but he proved to many people that Mitt Romney is not necessarily the Republican Party's golden boy for the nomination. Gingrich beat out Romney by over 10 points.
Here are the actual results:
Newt Gingrich - 40.4%
Mitt Romney - 27.8%
Rick Santorum - 17%
Ron Paul - 13%
Next primary up is Florida, which takes place on the 31st of January.
By the way, for those of you that are interested, Oklahoma's primary this year is on March 6 and the Washington caucus is on March 3.
