Hyped primary a rout

COLUMBIA -- It was supposed to be a race too close to call, but before polls closed Saturday in South Carolina's crucial Republican primary, Texas Gov. George W. Bush was declared a decisive winner with a probable 3-1 victory, based on exit polls.And without a single vote yet counted, U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona was conceding South Carolina in North Charleston and was packing his bags for a 9 p.m. flight to Michigan, which has its GOP primary Tuesday. That state has 58 voting delegates to the Republican National Convention. South Carolina has just 37, although its voters have never failed to select the primary candidates who eventually became the party's presidential nominee.
