Newt Gingrich wins South Carolina primary

Excerpts below:

Newt Gingrich has soundly defeated Mitt Romney in the South Carolina Republican primary, a comeback victory that puts to rest Romney's hopes of effectively wrapping up the GOP presidential nomination by the end of the month.

Rick Santorum is finishing a disappointing third place in the deeply conservative Palmetto State, and Ron Paul finished in fourth.

"Thank you to everybody in South Carolina who decided to be with us in changing Washington," Gingrich, who hails from nearby Georgia, told cheering supporters in South Carolina Saturday after his double-digit victory.

The former House speaker attributed his victory to the notion that "the American people feel that they have elites who have been trying for a half century to quit being American and become some other system." Gingrich, a longtime Washington power broker, repeatedly criticized "the elites in New York and Washington" in his remarks.

Gingrich largely spoke positively of his rivals but harshly criticized President Obama, who he suggested was moving America toward a "secular, European-style bureaucratic socialist system." (Watch a clip at left.)

With nearly all precincts reporting, Gingrich had 40 percent of the vote, followed by Romney with 28 percent, Santorum with 17 percent and Paul with 13 percent.

Gingrich's victory brings fresh energy into his campaign -- which has twice been left for dead -- ahead of the Florida primary on January 31. For Romney, meanwhile, an opportunity to win the nomination and pivot to a focus on the general election before the spring was gone. South Carolina has voted for the candidate who went on to with the GOP nomination in every primary since 1980.
