Who's Stayin' Alive After South Carolina?
South Carolina awards 50 delegates to the July Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. 29 are awarded to the winner, with 21 split up and three each given to the winners of the seven congressional districts. 1,239 delegates are required for a candidate to win the nomination.
Current projections are spotty, but it looks as though Trump may sweep the state, taking each congressional district, and gaining 50 delegates. Rubio is vying for South Carolina's first congressional district, although latest numbers show Trump ahead there, as well.
The AP count now has Trump up by 3,000 votes in SC-01, which would give him a full delegate sweep. I can't verify the accuracy of this data
