It's a nail-biter in the race for South Carolina's open Congressional seat in the 1st District. While many believe former Governor Mark Sanford is poised to win his old seat in Congress, most seem to agree Elizabeth Colbert-Busch could still pull out a victory if her "ground game" is solid and she managed to pull out more of her supporters to vote today. 

We get more from Kendra Smith, a political science professor at the College of Charleston. We also talk to several voters to find out who they voted for, why they voted that way and what they want from the district's next representative. Then we'll talk to John Steinbegger, vice chair of the Charleston County Republican Party about why he's confident Sanford will prove victorious. We also visit the studio of ABC 4, the local ABC news affiliate and talk to Sam Tyson about the reports they are getting from the ground and why Elizabeth Colbert-Busch's name is on the same ballot multiple times.
