Elizabeth Colbert Busch has won the Democratic primary in the South Carolina special election. With almost 60 percent of the vote in, she has ... 95 percent.

Busch, the sister of Stephen Colbert, had only one challenger in a narrow Democratic field of only two candidates. The Repulican contest is still open but former governor Mark Sanford has a plurality of votes.
