COLUMBIA, South Carolina - Newt Gingrich won the Republican US presidential primary in South Carolina on Saturday, with Mitt Romney behind in second, television networks projected.

Fox News and NBC projected Gingrich, the former speaker of the House of Representatives, as the winner but CNN had not yet called the election.

Gingrich's victory means that three different candidates have won the first three contests in the state-by-state battle for the Republican presidential nomination to face Democratic President Barack Obama on Nov. 6. Rick Santorum won the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3 and Romney won the New Hampshire primary on Jan. 10.
