Statewide turnout surpasses predictions

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – The turnout for Saturday’s Republican presidential primary smashed both the number of people who voted in 2012 and the expected number of voters this year.

More than 735,000 people cast ballots in the election, easily surpassing the 650,000 that some experts were predicting including State Republican Party Chairman Matt Moore.

Just over 600,000 voted in the Republican presidential primary four years ago.
