CHARLESTON, SC -

It looks like Curtis Bostic is not looking towards a recount in Charleston County, he says he won the election and he will get ready for the run-off.  The Charleston County Election Commission ordered a recount set for Friday because he and State Senator Larry Grooms are separated by less than one percentage point.

If Bostic is officially named the winner he will be in the run-off against former Governor Mark Sanford.  He says his successful night was no accident and gave credit to a groundswell of support. "We did it by the grace of god. We did it by the hard work of lots of good people. I believe this seat is supposed to be representative of the people and the people rose up and worked."

Bostic's numbers steadily climbed throughout the evening on Tuesday. At an election party held at his law firm off Wappoo Road in West Ashley, family and friends cheered with every tick in his favor.

Bostic does not have the political resume' like the others in the packed field of 16 Republicans. The local attorney and former Marine served on Charleston County Council for 8 years ending in 2008. If he is named the winner a runoff against Sanford will he held on April 2nd.
