Awaiting Results: McCain Wins South Carolina

John McCain has just been projected as the winner of the South Carolina Republican primary, beating Mike Huckabee who has just accepted second place. It could be a crucial win, as South Carolinians have picked the eventual nominee in every contest since 1980. Given the assortment of winners in the Republican contests to date, this, the first primary in the South could be a vital momentum-maker.

McCain joins Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney, who also won delegates in Nevada earlier today. According to The New York Times, Hillary Clinton has just revealed that she will make "a significant campaign announcement" tomorrow. The Democrats hold their primary in South Carolina in a week.

In other news, Duncan Hunter has ended his bid for the White House.

This is freaking insane. McCain isn't someone I want in the White House and representing out country. The republican party picked George W. Bush in 2000 to represent them and get the nomination OVER McCain, doesn't that say anything about him?

I like Fred Thompson, but I suppose McCain will do.

Hillary's big announcement? According to MSNBC: "Hillary Clinton returned to Harlem's historic Abyssinian Baptist Church Sunday to pick up the endorsement of its minister, a prominent figure in New York's African-American community who made a point of explaining why he was supporting her and not her chief rival."

That's a double-edged sword. He's the smartest Republican, and the least scariest if he actually won. On the other hand, he's the only Republican that would actually be a challenge to beat.

I like McCain except for McCain/Feingold (sp?) I am wary of people trying to legislate rules on free speech.

I'm not a Republican, but I do like John McCain. I'm really glad he won SC.

oinkoink, that's exactly what I was hoping. I mean, if I had to have a Republican in office, I would go with McCain; however, I believe we need a change of parties in the White House right now.

You go, McCain!

I was hoping Huckabee would win only because I think McCain will be a challenge for the Democrats to beat if he wins the nomination. I do not want another Republican in the White House. I'm hoping he loses to Romney or Huckabee.

Utah, Idaho and Nevada are a given for Romney...the other Rep candidates shouldn't even bother campaigning in those states due to the high Mormon contingency. I think that the number of states he wins will go way downhill after those are secured. I'm curious though...what on earth could Hillary's "significant campaign announcement" be? Probably some celebrity endorsement? And why announce on a Sunday? Except that she'll be at a Baptist church when she does it?
