BLUFFTON, S.C. (AP) -- Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour has picked up a straw poll win during his two-day swing through South Carolina.

Barbour won the Republican County GOP convention straw poll with 22 percent of the vote. He was the only candidate in waiting to attend the convention.

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann was in South Carolina, too, at a private fundraising event for her re-election campaign. She placed a distant fourth with 9 percent behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorurm and millionaire developer Donald Trump.
