Gingrich Clinches 23 of S.C.'s 25 Delegates
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won the two remaining delegates
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich dominated the South Carolina Primary, but he didn't come away with a shutout.
The South Carolina Republican party announced Monday that Gingrich won 23 of the state's delegates, while former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney earned the final two.
Romney carried the first Congressional district, marking his only success in an otherwise failed stumble in South Carolina.
Gingrich won 11 at-large delegates for his statewide victory and earned 12 more after winning the other six Congressional districts.
South Carolina had its number of delegates cut in half by the Republican National Committee because it moved its primary to Jan. 21 to maintain first-in-the-South status. As a result, only 25 delegates were up for grabs, instead of the usual 50.
Gingrich earned 40.43 percent of the vote statewide, while Romney earned 27.85 percent. A record 605,710 people voted during the primary.
