-- Donald Trump won South Carolina's Republican primary handily Saturday, capturing 33.5 percent of the vote with 100 percent of precincts reporting.
The business mogul thanked his South Carolina supporters, his volunteers and his family in his victory speech. He was joined on stage at his campaign rally in Spartanburg, South Carolina, with his family as the crowd chanted “USA.”
“There is nothing easy about running for president, I can tell you. It’s tough, it’s nasty, it’s mean, it’s vicious. It’s beautiful. When you win it’s beautiful," he said.
