Sen. Barack Obama talks with employees of Harper’s Restaurant in Columbia, South Carolina, on Saturday.

Sen. Hillary Clinton was expected to finish second, ahead of former Sen. John Edwards, according to CNN projections.

Obama’s likely victory capped a heated contest in South Carolina, the first Democratic primary in the South and the first with a largely African-American electorate.

The Illinois senator, who is hoping to become the United States’ first African-American president, did well with black voters, who made up about half of Saturday’s electorate, according to exit polls.

Black voters supported Obama by a margin of more than 4-to-1 over his nearest rival, exit polls indicate.

Among white voters, Obama took about a quarter of the vote, with Clinton and Edwards roughly splitting the remainder, those polls indicated.
