John McCain has won South Carolina's Republican primary. Saying "we've got a long way to go," McCain tells The Associated Press he believes the victory will help him next week when Florida votes and on February 5th when more than two dozen states hold primaries and caucuses.

In a close race, Mike Huckabee came in second, just a few points behind the Arizona senator.
