COLUMBIA, South Carolina (CNN) – In speeches and in TV ads and pretty much everywhere else, John Edwards has made sure South Carolina voters know he was born in the state.
His roots didn't help much across the state tonight - except in the county of his birth.
Edwards won Oconee County on Saturday, handily defeating Hillary Clinton and primary winner Barack Obama, who finished third there. Edwards was born in the Oconee town of Seneca.
